President Donald Trump on Friday said he will call the Swedish prime minister “to see what we can do about” rapper A$AP Rocky, who is incarcerated in Sweden.
The president decided that he would make that call to Prime Minister Stefan Lofven following a conversation with hip hop star Kanye West, Trump tweeted.
“I will be calling the very talented Prime Minister of Sweden to see what we can do about helping A$AP Rocky. So many people would like to see this quickly resolved!” Trump wote.
A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, has been detained in Sweden since early July. He is accused of assaulting a man in Stockholm.
