President Trump Responds to Jay-Z’s CNN Interview & Gets Dragged on Twitter

Jay-Z was recently interviewed by Democratic Political Analyst Van Jones for his CNN talk show this weekend.

During the interview, they touched on President Trump and his recent negative comments about African countries. Jay expressed disappointment in the President and acknowledged that these things are said behind close doors.

CNN writes:

Hip-hop legend Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter described President Donald Trump’s “s**thole countries” comment as disappointing and hurtful.

“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,” he told Van Jones on the debut of his CNN program, “The Van Jones Show,” which aired Saturday on CNN.
Trump made those comments in an Oval Office meeting, according to some of the participants, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal to protect DACA participants. “Why do we want all these people from shithole countries coming here?” he reportedly told senators on January 11.

Jay-Z later said Trump’s comments expose a larger problem of racism in this country and the way that people still talk behind closed doors.

“There was a moment when Donald Sterling had been exposed as this racist on a private phone conversation that he was having and they took his team from him,” Jay-Z said, referring to remarks made in 2014 by the former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Afterwards, President Trump responded to Jay-Z’s criticism. He reiterated via his Twitter account that Black Unemployment is at its lowest level ever recorded. But, this led to many of his critics, including Van Jones, responding to the president and calling out the alternative facts.

  1. Trump is so trash. And he’s not even smart enough to realize that it takes a couple of years for the effects of a current president’s policies to affect the economy. Truth be told, we are all still benefiting from Obama’s policies.

  2. I knew he was going to tweet about this. Eminem definitely said much worst, but the orange one won’t come for him because he’s like the only rapper racists love.

  3. But the unemployment has been going down because thats the foundation Obama created you just got in office idiot. Trump thinks he slick notice how he responded to Jayz immediately but has never responded to Eminem know why because that won’t rile up his racists fans like going after a black man will. All he is trying to do is rile up his prejudice and racist supporters

  4. I hope Jay pays this white supremacist dust. He’s not worth another comment and damn sure not worthy of a response.
