Rapper Jay Z trashed US President Trump in a weekend interview with CNN’s Van Jones.
According to The Gateway Pundit, Van Jones mentioned to Jay Z that black unemployment is at the lowest rate in generations under President Trump.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics in January reported that the unemployment rate for black workers was 6.8 percent in December, the lowest rate in 45 years.
Jay Z told Jones black folks don’t really care about money. That it’s not important at the end of the day.
Jay Z has not been broke in a while.
Jay Z: It’s not about money at the end of the day. Money doesn’t equate to happiness. You’re missing the whole point.
According to Forbes Jay Z is worth $810 million.
And he’s lecturing the hood on how money is not important.
The $810 million man telling CNN‘s Van Jones, “it’s not about money”…talk about fake news.
Someone needs to inform @realdonaldtrump that I ALREADY asked Jay Z whether black employment figures redeem Trump’s presidency. And Jay’s answer last night on the #VanJonesShow was POWERFUL !!! … Watch the VIDEO for yourself: https://t.co/7Sv3rHKkmW https://t.co/jbHpkKOM5o

President Trump did not remain silent after Jay-Z attacked him, by issuing a scathing tweet demanding the rapper look at record low black unemployment rates.
“Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!”

In a lighter twist to a commonplace story of another hollywood elitist infected with TDS, Dilbert creator Scott Adams noticed something curious about Trump’s tweet towards Jay Z. It’s actually a rap, tweeted Adams.
“Record yourselves doing the #POTUSRAP and tweet it to me.”

Adams’ tweet prompted a firestorm of Twitter users to record themselves rapping the “lyrics,” tweeted by Trump to Jay Z.
