Trump just attacked rapper Jay Z in an early morning Twitter rage


Donald Trump has no trouble taking credit for every economic win that President Barack Obama accomplished. The economy is no exception, but this is getting ridiculous. (see video below)

The U.S. economy is much better if a person is already wealthy, but the typical American has not seen a raise in his or her salary in decades. Sure, the stock market is flying high, but most of that wealth already goes to those in the top one percent. As for those new jobs, they are nothing like the manufacturing jobs that helped created the bigger middle class.

Trump crowed in his early morning tweet:

‘Our economy is better than it has been in many decades. Businesses are coming back to America like never before. Chrysler as an example, is leaving Mexico and coming back to the USA. Unemployment is nearing record lows. We are on the right track.’

Then, Trump jumped on Jay-Z, tweeting:

‘Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!’

CNN’s Van Jones asked Jay-Z if Trump’s comment “to say terrible things but put money in our pockets” as the president tweeted about Black unemployment, and Jay-Z said:

‘(No) You treat people like human beings. That’s the main point…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.’

Jay-Z compared Donald Trump a “superbug:”

‘You don’t take the trash out. 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.’
