A$AP Rocky Says Donald Trump’s Advocacy Made His 2019 Arrest in Sweden Worse, in New Documentary Stockholm Syndrome
By Nobetternina (@nobetternina)
A$AP Rocky recently premiered a new documentary titled Stockholm Syndrome at the Tribeca Film Festival, which largely followed his arrest in Sweden back in 2019.
Rocky was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, after 2 men continued to follow the New York rapper through the streets of Sweden after he had told them to leave him alone. He then spent almost one month in jail in Sweden, with former U.S. President Donald Trump advocating for Rocky’s freedom on social media.
In a tweet, Trump had claimed that he had spoken with Sweden’s prime minister, after rapper Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian had asked him to intervene and help bring A$AP home.
The Harlem rapper detailed the moment he found out Trump was advocating for his freedom in Stockholm Syndrome, saying that he joked about actually having to do a couple years behind bars in Sweden because of Trump’s intervention.
A$AP Rocky admits that he did have mixed feelings about Trump’s support, because he felt it could jeopardize any chances of freedom he might actually have, but at the same time was also thankful for any support her received at the time.
Rocky revealed that his dealings with the Trump administration ended as soon as he got home, largely because he didn’t thank Trump publicly for his support, which A$AP still feels actually made the situation a little worse.
