The president of the United States tweeted a message to the rapper on Sunday in an apparent response to a CNN interview in which Jay-Z said the president’s alleged vulgar comments about African countries and Haiti were “disappointing” and “hurtful”.
Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, appeared on CNN’s The Van Jones Show on Saturday night and was asked about how he felt when the president of the United States. UU He supposedly called the African countries “for their holes”.
The rapper said: “Yes, it’s disappointing and hurtful, everybody feels anger, after the anger, it’s excruciating because it’s like despising a whole population of people.”
Trump has denied the comment, but Jay-Z said it was “how people talk … behind closed doors.”
He then compared the alleged comment with a clip from a telephone conversation involving former Clippers owner Donald Sterling, which cost him control of the NBA team in 2014.
Jay-Z said that the public fall of Sterling led “all other racist racists to return to the hole.”

He said: “You have not fixed anything, what you do when you do it is that the insects come in. You spray something, and you create a superbug because you do not take care of the problem.
“You do not take out the trash; you keep spraying whatever is on it to make it acceptable.” As those things grow, you create a superbug. And now we have Donald Trump, the superbug. ”
He added: “I’m funny, I also say that.”
Then Jay-Z was asked if Trump’s repeated claim that he had reduced African-American unemployment to record minimums and put money in people’s pockets made him a good leader.
He replied: “No because it’s not about money at the end of the day … money is not equivalent to happiness; it’s not like that, it’s losing the whole point, you’re treating people as human beings, that’s the main point. “
