A$AP Rocky Freed From Swedish Prison as Donald Trump Takes Credit For Rapper's Release

We can practically guarantee this will never be the case ever again, but in this one instance ... we couldn't have said it better than Donald Trump.

"A$AP Rocky released from prison and on his way home to the United States from Sweden," the president tweeted moments ago.

"It was a Rocky Week, get home ASAP A$AP!"

Yes, the celebratory puns are flowing like Trump Vineyards Champagne today, as fans all over the world celebrate the release of rapper A$AP Rocky from a Swedish prison.

As you've likely heard by now, A$AP was arrested on assault charges, and he's spent the past month in jail awaiting trial.

According to TMZ, Rocky appeared in court today and was set free following testimony from two witnesses who say he did not strike the alleged victim with a champagne bottle, as the plaintiff had claimed.

Today's court date was only a preliminary hearing, and Rocky is still scheduled to stand trial on August 14.

But considering he was released from jail and granted permission to leave the country, it's been widely assumed that he'll be found not guilty in absentia.

After all, extraditing him would be a nightmare, given the fact that Rocky has the full support of President Trump.

Trump took up A$AP's cause last month and he has repeatedly called for his release in recent weeks.

"Give A$AP Rocky his FREEDOM," Trump tweeted on July 25.

"We do so much for Sweden but it doesn’t seem to work the other way around. Sweden should focus on its real crime problem! #FreeRocky"

"THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART TO ALL OF MY FANS, FRIENDS AND ANYONE ACROSS THE GLOBE WHO SUPPORTED ME DURING THESE LAST FEW WEEKS," the rapper wrote on Instagram.

"I CANT BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW GRATEFUL I AM FOR ALL OF YOU THIS HAS BEEN A VERY DIFFICULT AND HUMBLING EXPERIENCE I WANT TO THANK THE COURT FOR ALLOWING ME BLADI AND THOTO TO RETURN TO OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL OF THE LOVE AND SUPPORT," he added.

We join millions of fans (and one sitting president) in welcoming A$AP home.
