A$AP Rocky's hometown congressman isn't sure Trump is genuine about helping the rapper

A$AP Rocky's hometown congressman isn't sure if President Trump is genuine in wanting to help free him -- but he says it doesn't matter as long as the end goal is achieved.

TMZ got Rep. Adriano Espaillat in NYC Sunday -- where he represents A$AP's home borough of Harlem and asked what he made of Trump saying he'd guarantee Rocky's bail if need be.

Rep. Espaillat says Trump being willing to put his own rep on the line for A$AP's bail is somewhat irrelevant, 'cause as he points out ... money's not really the issue here.

He was also asked if Trump is just using this as a re-election tactic to tap into a new demographic of potential voters come 2020, but the congressman won't go there. He tells them he doesn't wanna speculate on potential motives -- but what he is sure about is that those wanting to get A$AP freed will take any help they can get at this point, including from 45. But why is TMZ like this. LOL
