Trump Isn’t Pleased with Jay-Z – but Why?by

Last week was fairly quiet in terms of US President Donald Trump’s use of Twitter – while the Commander in Chief is reportedly glued to his smartphone most days, last week saw the President make a number of public moves that impacted rather positively. He not only moved to apologize for sharing offensive videos published by the Facebook group Britain First, but also confirmed that protection for US-based ‘Dreamers’ – those who immigrated to the US as children – would be rolled out. However, as the new week rolls into view, it seems that a new spat has opened up on Twitter – and this time, his beef isn’t with the leader of North Korea but with rap legend Jay-Z. But why?

The Tidal co-creator took to interview with CNN at the weekend to discuss moves that the US President has made during his first year in charge – and he wasn’t particularly shy about sharing his thoughts. Speaking about territories such as Haiti and El Salvador which were reportedly referred to by Trump in a legal meeting as ‘sh*thole countries’, the rapper was keen to speak his mind. “It really is hurtful, more so,” said Jay-Z of Trump’s reported words. “Like everyone feels anger, but after the anger it’s really hurtful, because these places have beautiful people and have beautiful everything. This is the leader of the free world speaking like this.”

The star had taken to The Van Jones Show on CNN to discuss his new album – 4:44 – among other things, but talk soon turned to Trump. The President, however, took to Twitter to mount a defense against Jay-Z that, oddly, focused on employment figures for African Americans. “Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED,” the tweet reads (sans exclamation point). Oddly enough, Jay-Z had discussed such matters in interview the day before – with Van Jones himself highlighting such a fact around an hour after Trump’s defense.

Trump’s tendency to use Twitter as his own public platform to speak back against figures who criticise and oppose him has been covered extensively by the world press – leading some who oppose him to declare that he is effectively creating new on his own – without the need for the ‘fake news’ agencies he has fought against in recent times. Certainly, following his account makes for interesting reading on a regular basis – and, for now, this is where much of the headline-grabbing action is at!
