Donald Trump took to twitter on Saturday to guarantee rapper A$AP Rocky‘s bail, or an alternative, for release from a Swedish jail.

The rapper was detained in early July, accused of assaulting a man before a concert in Stockholm. He denied the charges, posting Instagrams of two men follow his entourage.

Trump’s tweet comes just a day after he announced plans to call the Swedish prime minister to see how he can help rapper A$AP Rocky.

But according to CNBC News, this wasn’t Trump’s original idea. The proposed call to Prime Minister Stefan Lofven came as an idea after the president had a conversation with Kanye West.

Trump’s connection to West comes as no surprise. Since the 2016 election Kanye has shown unwavering support for Trump, while his wife, Kim Kardashian West, has worked alongside him to help nonviolent criminals to be released from jail.

West tweeted in April 2018: “You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We both are dragon energy.”
