“We had a very good phone call with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, who assured me that the US citizen ASAP Rocky would be treated fairly. I assured him he would not run away and I offered to personally guarantee his release on bail or any other alternative. Our teams will continue to talk and we have agreed to redraw this topic within 48 hours, “Trump wrote on Twitter.
ASAP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was arrested on July 2 after being volunteered at a police station in Stockholm to be questioned about an altercation he was involved in.
Rocky and his entourage, who were in Stockholm to sing at the Smash Festival, were riding through the city on June 30 but they were approached and verbally harassed by two men who began to watch them, according to a rapper close to him.
Finally, one of the men “punched” Rocky’s bodyguard and the altercation began.
“They were looking for a fight,” the person said, adding that his rapper and friends had no choice and had to defend themselves. The person also added that Rocky was “impatient to present his case” to the court.
In a video posted by TMZ, ASAP Rocky can be seen casting one of the men on the floor and then he and his friends hit him while he is on the ground.
Rocky also posted a video on his Instagram account, where he can see how his bodyguard tells the two men not to follow him.
His situation came to Donald Trump’s attention after Kim Kardashian, the reality-show star who was received several times at the White House, asked him to intervene.
On Friday, the US president spoke on Twitter that he and Kim Kardashian’s husband, rapper Kanye West, also spoke about “ASAP Rocky’s incarceration.” “So many people would like to see this resolved quickly,” Donald wrote Trump.
