A$AP Rocky refuses to thank Trump for advocating his release from prison

If one thing is certain, A$AP Rocky’s escapade in Sweden has been one in a million.

It’s been a few weeks since A$AP Rocky was freed from Swedish jail after being detained and US President Donald Trump has something to say about it all.

Donald Trump has been reportedly trying to make A$AP Rocky publicly thank him for speaking out on his behalf. But the rapper has been leaving him with a cold shoulder.

It has been reported that Rocky’s manager had promised a public thank you from Rocky to President Trump who had been a vocal advocate for Rocky’s release.This is after the rapper and his entourage were arrested and found guilty of assaulting a 19-year old on the streets of Stockholm late at night in June of this year.

In an overall assessment, the court found that the assault had not been of such a serious nature that a prison sentence must be chosen. However, many have argued that the high-profile nature of the case and Trump’s involvement did come into play.

But A$AP Rocky has apparently stopped answering Trump’s calls and refusing to thank him for stepping in. While the public statement might have been used as a move to strengthen Trump’s relationship with the African-American community, Rocky’s ghosting could just have the opposite effect.

Trump wasn’t the only vocal advocate for Rocky’s release. Plenty of celebrities like Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Rico Nasty, and FKA Twigs all stood behind the young rapper.

A$AP Rocky was detained for over three weeks before being charged. However, he will not return to prison but instead serve a suspended sentence and pay all related damages.
