After again noting that "so many people" called the White House "asking me to help A$AP Rocky", the president gave credit to First Lady Melania Trump for first bringing the issue to him.
"Many, many members of the African American community have called me, friends of mine, and said could you help?"
Urged on by First Lady Melania and celebrities including Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West, the president had said on Friday that he would intervene to try to free Rocky, whose real name is Rakim May.
"Your commitment to justice reform is so appreciated", she wrote.
In the latest headline that reads like a Cards From Humanity scenario, Justin Bieber has now entered the political arena after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have used their fame to get Donald Trump release A$AP Rocky from jail.

Rocky has been locked up overseas since July 2, after he turned himself in to police to be questioned about a street fight he was involved in that went viral.

President Trump confirmed reports Friday that his administration is working to help release rapper A$AP Rocky after the entertainer was arrested in Sweden on suspicion of assault charges earlier this month.
Top Swedish prosecutor Petra Lundh did not say whether Rocky would be released as a result of calls from the US.
Two days after their detention they were ordered to be held for two weeks, but a court has now ruled that police can have another week to work on their investigation. We expect all governments, including Sweden, to treat American citizens fairly and with respect. In June 2018, Trump commuted the sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a first-time nonviolent drug offender, a week after Kardashian West pleaded her case during a meeting with the President on prison reform.
