Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Donald Trump promises to ‘vouch’ for A$AP Rocky ‘bail’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Trump said he would “personally vouch” for rapper A$AP Rocky’s “bail.”

The commander-in-chief said Saturday he made the promise in a phone call with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

“Just had a very good call with @SwedishPM Stefan Löfven who assured me that American citizen A$AP Rocky will be treated fairly,” Trump tweeted. “Likewise, I assured him that A$AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative.

“I assume that people think we have a bail system and he was denied bail,” Dennis Martinsson, a senior law lecturer at Stockholm University, told Time Magazine. “We don’t have that system, so the only option is detention.”

Rocky, a platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated artist whose real name is Rakim Mayers, has been in jail since July 5 while Swedish authorities investigate a fight he was allegedly involved in in Stockholm before appearing at a music festival.
