Moments after the news broke A$AP Rocky was free to go home, Donald Trump jumped on Twitter to declare Rocky’s — at least temporary — freedom.
While it’s true 45 attempted to intervene on Rocky’s behalf, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven immediately shut down his request, saying the Swedish government “cannot and will not attempt to influence the legal proceedings.” Instead of respecting Löfven’s stance, Trump proceeded to shame him on Twitter.
“Very disappointed in Prime Minister Stefan Löfven for being unable to act,” Trump tweeted on July 25. “Sweden has let our African American Community down in the United States. I watched the tapes of A$AP Rocky, and he was being followed and harassed by troublemakers. Treat Americans fairly! #FreeRocky.”

As a result, countless Twitter users found it rather humorous Trump’s tweet appeared to insinuate he had something do with Rocky’s release.
“A$AP Rocky released from prison and on his way home to the United States from Sweden,” he tweeted. “It was a Rocky Week, get home ASAP A$AP!”

So let me get this straight. Kim Jong Un and A$AP are your homies. But you mocked a dedicated and respected member of Congress today after his home was burglarized. RESIGN!!

Hey Donald, you had nothing to do with the release of A$AP Rocky. Silly puns on his name aren't going to convince anyone that you're not a racist.
Also, how did you know about the burglary at Elijah Cummings' house before it became public? https://t.co/NDQ7K44iOI

Okay first of all Trump had nothing to do with the release of ASAP Rockey, second of all everyone is equall in front of the law in Sweden which is more than you can say for your own country and third of all ASAP has only been released from jail and will receive his verdict 14 Aug

You do know you had nothing to do with this?

Please don't take credit for something you had nothing to do with. They had already told you that you could not influence them.
