"I received a very good call with @Swedish MP Stefan Löfven, who badured me that the American citizen A $ AP Rocky will receive a fair treatment." Similarly, I badured him that A $ AP was not a flight risk and offered to respond personally for his bail or an alternative, "Trump tweeted on Saturday.
Trump said the two teams agreed to speak again in the next 48 hours, but Lofven's spokesman, Toni Eriksson, said on Saturday: "There may be follow-up calls, but at this time there is not a scheduled one."
Eriksson said the prime minister told Trump in the 20-minute call on Saturday that his government "can not and will not" influence the judicial process regarding the case of A $ AP Rocky.
"The Prime Minister made sure to point out that the Swedish judicial system, prosecutors and courts, are completely independent," said Eriksson, who called the call "friendly and respectful." "He also pointed out that everyone is equal before the law and that the government can not and will not try to influence the judicial process."
Prosecutor Daniel Suneson said in a separate statement that the court ruled that the 30-year-old rapper should remain in prison because it was considered a "flight risk."
The rapper has been detained since July 3 after a confrontation in Stockholm, where he faces accusations of serious badault, according to the Swedish affiliate of CNN Expressen. Prosecutors are investigating a fight that broke out on June 30, in which A $ AP Rocky is suspected of involvement.
The president added: "Many members of the African-American community have called me" my friends "and they said:" Could you help me? "
