Trump said on Twitter he spoke with rapper Kanye West about the case on Friday and would be calling Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven "to see what we can do about helping A$AP Rocky".

It looks like A$AP Rocky will be in jail in Sweden for at least another week after a judge in the country sided with prosecutors and granted them more time - until next Thursday, July 25, to be exact - on whether to indict the rapper on assault charges. He said he had received calls from his African-American friends urging him to help, and credited Melania Trump with bringing it to his attention.

"I personally don't know A$AP Rocky, but I can tell you that he has tremendous support from the African American community in this country", he added. And when I say African-American, I think I can really say from everyone in this country, 'cuz we're all one. ASAP - born Rakim Mayers - has been detained because authorities have considered him a "flight risk", meaning they hope to more thoroughly investigate the allegations before releasing him, lest he attempt to flee their jurisdiction.

A Stockholm court on Friday ordered that United States rapper ASAP Rocky, detained in Sweden on assault allegations, should be kept in custody for another week while the prosecutor completes his investigation. More than 600,000 people have signed an online petition for his release, while fellow artists have also expressed their support.

Another video of the incident appeared to show ASAP Rocky lifting one of the men off his feet and throwing him to the ground.

"This was a self-defense situation", A$AP Rocky's defense lawyer Slobodan Jovicic told reporters.

The 38 year-old internet thanked Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to the president, and "everyone involved" with what she called "the efforts to Free ASAP Rocky".

"Actually the one who knew about A$AP Rocky was our first lady", Trump said. "Your commitment to justice reform is so appreciated".

US President Donald Trump will intervene in A$AP Rocky's legal drama after Kanye West asked him for help. It was not clear who else was involved.

U.S. Reps. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.), Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), André Carson (D-Ind.) and Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.) say Rocky and two of his friends have faced "inhumane conditions" while in custody.

He then said directly to the camera: "Just for the cameras, we don't want no problems with these boys, they keep following us".
