During a press session at the White House, first lady Melania Trump spoke about A $ AP Rocky. The rapper, who was arrested two weeks ago in Sweden and has been imprisoned there ever since, according to Trump, will return home soon.
"Foreign Affairs is busy with it right now and he's coming home soon," Trump said.
President Trump gave the floor to his wife, after declaring to have had several worried phone calls from the African-American community about the fate of A $ AP Rocky. According to the president he did not know the rapper, but his wife knew who the artist was and she was the one who pointed him to the case.
The verdict of the first lady comes after Friday it was announced that the Swedish prosecutor has filed a request to keep A $ AP Rocky in custody for longer.
The rapper, actually called Rakim Mayers, is currently being held in Sweden after footage shows how to hit and kick a man.
Rapper was harassed by two boys
Thirty-year-old Mayers performed in Stockholm and were subsequently harassed by two boys along with his entourage on the street. The artist himself shared images of this on Instagram. It shows how one of the boys takes his own headphones and smashes them just outside the screen, according to Mayers on the head of the security guard.
Images later shared by other people showed how the rapper grabbed the man and threw him on the floor. Other images showed how Mayers and his friends hit the man and kicked him in.
Two of the other men shown in the images are also still being held in Sweden. Several well-known artists have commented on the case and hope for release of A $ AP Rocky.
