Lil Yachty is not feeling the fact that Donald Trump is trying to help A$AP Rocky's fucked up situation in Sweden… at all. Real name Rakim Mayers, Rocky is currently being unjustly detained overseas for alleged assaults on some locals. Many celebrities and artists have spoke out including G-Eazy, who brought up that "white privilege" and "systemic racism" is what separated the two rappers' situations. The Bay Area rapper was arrested last year for assault and possession of drugs in Sweden, as well.

Two weeks ago, President Donald Trump came forth on Twitter to let the world know that he spoke to Kanye West about Rocky's incarceration. He then proceeded to let the people know he would be calling the Prime Minister of Sweden to explore a solution.

TMZ recently ran up on Lil Yachty while at the LAX airport and asked his thoughts on A$AP Rocky's situation, and Trump working to get him out.

Lil Boat replied, "I don't know, but I don't think that's the way to go about it, the way Trump handling it. If you gon' do something, just do it. You don't got to keep telling everybody, just do it. He ain't got to keep tweeting."

Yachty did not cease to air his thoughts on the matter… at Donald Trump.

"I don't care what that n*gga do. Rocky, on the other hand, I don't know. We need to figure it out though 'cause that's my big brother, it's real sad and depressing. Whatever he (Trump) should be doing, he shouldn't be on the internet about it. I would be in Sweden — but then again, I know for a fact Donald Trump don't care."

Lil Boat is referring to Trump's Twitter fingers, calling him out on the fact that he doesn't need to talk about it, he should just deliver when he says he's going to help out Rocky. A few days ago, the prez followed up to his 62.4 million followers to reveal he was "very disappointed in Prime Minister Stefan Löfven for being unable to act."

The tweet continued: "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."

But, Yachty does not buy into any of it. "He knows this is some points," the "Yacht Club" artist continue. "'Oh man, I can really win a lot of black people over.' He don't really care at all."
