Kamala Harris Says Trump’s Attempt To Help Black Rapper Trapped In Sweden Is ‘Misuse Of Power’ (VIDEO)
Guest post by Mike LaChance at American Lookout:
Trump is trying to help a black American rapper named A$ap who is being held in Sweden.
Kamala Harris is taking a contradictory stance on this issue, just because Trump is for it. This is how Trump is able to make Democrats look completely crazy. They take positions just to be anti-Trump.
If Trump wasn’t helping A$ap, Kamala Harris would be criticizing Trump for that.

Kamala Harris: Trump’s Attempt to Free Imprisoned Rapper Is ‘Misuse of Power’
Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) said President Donald Trump’s role in the case of imprisoned rapper A$AP Rocky case is a misuse of power which “has to end” while speaking at the NAACP Convention’s presidential candidate forum on Wednesday.
A$AP Rocky has been imprisoned in Sweden since July 3 after a June 30 altercation and Trump has called for his release, as have Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. The president has pursued additional measures to pressure the Swedish government to release the artist, including speaking with the Swedish prime minister about the case and sending a State Department official to monitor the developing case—but Harris appeared unaware of any of those facts.
“As president, how would you handle the A$AP Rocky case in Sweden?” asked moderator April Ryan. “How will you use your power to make sure misuse of power doesn’t happen in cases like this, and that this case would stay in the State Department and not go to the White House?”
“There’s no question that this White House is, has been playing politics with his role of leadership, and it has to end. This president, I just want to back up for a second, so you know I have fought predators,” Harris began, before spending a few minutes going after the president. The exchange was first reported by Mediaite.
In the same interview, Harris tried to downplay her reputation as a prosecutor for obvious reasons.
It's wrong that people who were selling marijuana and are now felons for life are excluded from this industry. It's wrong, and it has to change. pic.twitter.com/HB7qqubC7B

President Trump tweeted about A$AP Rocky again last night.
Give A$AP Rocky his FREEDOM. 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
