Superstar Icon Jay-z has recently commented that Donald Trump The US President is a racist “superbug.”
In response, Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday morning “Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!”
Jay-Z had made his comments in anger to Trumps reference to Haiti and some African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting on immigration.
In an interview that aired on Saturday of “The Van Jones Show” Jigga stated “Everyone feels anger, but after the anger, it’s really hurtful because he’s looking down on a whole population of people and he’s so misinformed because these places have beautiful people.”
Trump allegedly made the comments to a group of Senators during a meeting earlier this month to fix the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
The remarks sparked outrage and criticism both in the U.S. and overseas.
Jay-Z, whose birth name is Shawn Carter, said the remarks were part of a bigger conversation on racism that needs to happen in America.
“You don’t take the trash out,” he said during his CNN interview. “You keep spraying whatever over it to make it acceptable and then, you know, as those things grow, then you create a superbug.”
“And then now we have Donald Trump, the superbug.”
He then in reconsideration saying the President “is a human being, too.”
“Somewhere along his lineage something happened to him,” he said. “And he’s in pain and he’s expressing it in this sort of way.”
