Twitter shreds Donald Trump after he tweets that “Sweden has let our African American community down” over rapper A$AP Rocky: “You mean like the Central Park Five?” one user tweeted.
Trump tweeted: “Very disappointed in Prime Minister Stefan Löfven for being unable to act. Sweden has let our African American Community down in the United States. I watched the tapes of A$AP Rocky, and he was being followed and harassed by troublemakers. Treat Americans fairly! #FreeRocky“

It was just last week that Donald Trump told four non-white lawmakers to “go back and fix the crime-infested places from which they came.” He also stood there while his mob of Deplorables chanted “send them back” at his rally in Greenville, NC. He led the racist birther movement against Barack Obama, was sued for housing discrimination in the 1970s, called black NFL players “sons of bitches” and more.
Prime Minister Stefan Löfven have explained and emphasised the complete independence of the Swedish judicial system, prosecutors and courts. In Sweden everyone is equal before the law. The Government is not allowed, and will not attempt, to influence legal proceedings.

As a member of the African American community, I guarantee you that most of us don’t know or care about the #ASAPRocky situation. And Sweden hasn’t done anything wrong. Lock his ass up!

Dear Sweden: We, "the African American Community," decided at our 2019 annual meeting that Trump can kiss our collective shea-buttered behinds.
The mantle on who can speak for us has not been passed to a malignant narcissist racist.
It remains safely with Barry and 'Chele.

Moron. The African American community have much more to worry about than Sweden putting a rapper on trial. let their justice system play out. Ricky should be able to hire adequate defense. Meanwhile we still have a criminal in the White House letting the whole country down.
