Just what is the deal with Trump and A$AP Rocky’s trial in Sweden?
The president even sent a top lawyer to keep an eye on the rapper's assault case. Oh, and Kanye's involved, too

Robert O’Brien, a partner in a Los Angeles law firm who has for decades been deeply involved in diplomacy in Iraq and Afghanistan, said he was there at Trump’s request.
