Justin Bieber Thanks Donald Trump For Helping A$AP Rocky But Lashes Over ‘Kids In Cages’
Justin Bieber thanked President Donald Trump for trying to help release rapper A$AP Rocky from jail in Sweden. He then put Trump in the spotlight by asking to let immigrant children out of their cages.
Bieber wrote in a tweet, “I want my friend out.. I appreciate you trying to help him. But while your at it @realDonaldTrump can you also let those kids out of cages?”

The news came after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West pleaded for the president to talk to Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven on the phone Saturday to advocate for A$AP Rocky. Trump offered to vouch for his bail.
Just spoke to @KanyeWest about his friend A$AP Rocky’s incarceration. I will be calling the very talented Prime Minister of Sweden to see what we can do about helping A$AP Rocky. So many people would like to see this quickly resolved!

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

According to Lofven’s press secretary Toni Eriksson, Lofven told Trump that the “Swedish judicial system, prosecutors and courts are completely independent.”
A$AP Rocky has been detained since July 3, following a fight against two strangers who can be seen following the rapper and picking a fight with his security guard in multiple Instagram videos.
