Late last month, President Donald Trump spoke out in support of the rapper at the behest of First Lady Melania Trump, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West, Politico reported.

The highly publicized trial wrapped Friday with Swedish prosecutors asking the court to convict the 30 year-old American rapper and consider imposing at least a six-month jail sentence.

Rapper A$AP Rocky was arrested in Sweden after getting into an altercation with two men who had been harassing his entourage.

After three days of testimony, a judge in Sweden said he will issue a verdict on the "gross assault" charges against A$AP Rocky on August 14.

A$AP Rocky's bodyguard also testified Friday and said since the alleged victims approached the entourage twice, in the US, that is grounds to take action and defend yourself.

A$AP Rocky has been on trial all week in an assault case stemming from a June 30 street brawl.

Both women who testified Friday maintained their previous statements to police that they saw Mayers and his partners beating and kicking Jafari. One focal point of the trial is determining whether or not Rocky and his two co-defendants used bottles in their fight. She said she heard the bottle being crushed, though she couldn't say whether Mayers' entourage threw the bottle to the ground or hit Jafari with it. He first addressed the case during a July presser in the Oval Office, during which he said First Lady Melania Trump informed him of the rapper being locked up in Sweden.

"I don't see how anything but prison is up for discussion", Suneson said.

Multiple rappers have announced that they will be boycotting Sweden on future tours.

A$AP Rocky has been released from Swedish custody, according to Swedish publication SvD and other sources. We do so much for Sweden but it doesn't seem to work the other way around. Kamala Harris (D-CA) downplayed the president's actions, characterizing them as a calculated political maneuver.
