Trump Hits Back At Jay-Z Over ‘Shithole Countries’ Comment

US President Donald Trump has lashed out at Jay-Z after the music mogul criticised the President for his disparaging comments about African countries.

UN Condemns Trump’s “Shithole Countries” Remark, Brands It “Racist”

“Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!,” Mr Trump tweeted.

The President’s tweet follows Jay-Z’s remarks on the premiere of CNN’s “The Van Jones Show,” where the rapper addressed Trump.

Asked by Van Jones whether it’s OK for Trump “to say terrible things but put money in our pockets” amid Trump’s claims that unemployment for African-Americans has dropped, Jay-Z said no, “because it’s not about money at the end of the day. Money doesn’t equate to happiness. It doesn’t. That’s missing the whole point.
“You treat people like human beings. That’s the main point,” he said. “It goes back to the whole thing — ‘treat me really bad and pay me well.’ It’s not going to lead to happiness, it’s going to lead to, again, the same thing. Everyone’s going to be sick.”

“It is disappointing and it’s hurtful. It really is hurtful, more than so … everyone feels anger but after the anger, it’s real hurtful,” Jay-Z said during the interview.

“Everyone feels anger, but after the anger it’s really hurtful because it’s looking down at a whole population of people and it’s so misinformed because these places have beautiful people and beautiful everything. This is the leader of the free world speaking like this,”Jay-Z said of Mr Trump’s “shithole” comment.

Jay-Z also labelled the President a “superbug”.

“You have sprayed perfume on the trash can,” he said.

“What you do when you do that is the bugs come. You spray something and you create a superbug because you don’t take care of the problem.

“You don’t take the trash out, you keep spraying whatever over it to make it acceptable.

“As those things grow, you create a superbug. And then now we have Donald Trump, the superbug.”
