President Trump is aware of the A$AP Rocky situation as he commented on the music star’s current imprisonment in Sweden during questioning by the press and admitted that First Lady Melania Trump informed him of the problem.
This is a huge development in the current A$AP Rocky situation as it’s the first time the president has openly confirmed his knowledge of the situation. Now it’s time to get involved. (RELATED: REPORT: Swedish Judge Rules A$AP Rocky Will Be Kept In Jail, Prosecutors Plan To Indict)

Sweden better look out because now that the president is fully caught up, I expect some sort of release of the star to come shortly. This would be a major victory for Trump if he can pull this off, and it looks like he is on track to try and negotiate something out with Sweden.
When it looked like A$AP was struggling to receive any positive news, the president and first lady came out and show ed their overwhelming support of him.

This story is heating up as the closer we get to the eventual release of A$AP. With Donald and Melania pairing up to solve this critical issue, I expect this to be a priority for the White House moving forward.
