A$AP Rocky Reveals What He Told Trump After His Swedish Prison Release


A$AP Rocky may be grateful for Donald Trump's support, but he still doesn't agree with his policies.

In a recent interview with "The Breakfast Club," the 31-year-old rapper opened up about his month-long stint in a Swedish prison last year, revealing what he said to POTUS, who called for Rocky's immediate release following his arrest, after he was released from prison.

"I spoke to [Trump] to thank [him],” he explained. “I don’t agree with all the political sh*t that he does at all, but I’m just thankful for everybody that supported me in there (Swedish prison)."

As fans know, Rocky was taken into police custody in Stockholm on July 3 and remained locked up for a month after being accused of assaulting 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari during a street fight. Despite footage of the incident showing that Rocky and his crew acting in self-defense, Rocky and members of his team were charged with assault.

Given the fact that cameras showed that the rapper and his crew were not the aggressors in the situation, the incident sparked somewhat of an international incident, with Trump getting involved when Sweden refused to release Rocky without having a full-blown trial. With millions calling for his release, including the President, Swedish officials decided to release Rocky after he spent a month behind bars and had to stand trial for the assault case. He was later found guilty and given a two-year suspended sentence.

While Rocky said he appreciated Trump's help, he admitted that when the President first got involved, he was worried he his "help" would do more harm than good. “So I’m really in Sweden and thinkin’ about all this political sh*t, I was kind of thinking it was going to make my situation worse, but I was still thankful. I’m just keeping it a hundred,” he shared on the radio show. "Regardless of the political sh*t, I kept it cordial and very respectful ‘cause I was thankful."
