Rap tycoon Jay-Z criticized President Trump on CNN. He said in a new interview that lower unemployment for the country’s African-American population is not enough, when people in power are still mistreating minorities and others.
President Trump responded in a Tweet on Sunday.
Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!

Jay-Z watches ‘Fake News’, his information is distorted. #FakeNews = CNN

CNN would not tell Jay-Z that his information was wrong so he continued to speak. He said that lower unemployment for the country’s African-American population is not enough, when people in power are still mistreating minorities and others.
He said in the interview, “It’s not about money at the end of the day. Money doesn’t equate to happiness. It doesn’t. That’s missing the whole point. You treat people like human beings. That’s the main point.”
In January, The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the unemployment rate for black workers was 6.8 percent in December. That is the lowest rate in 45 years.
Comments with no facts may have been attributed to what Trump said about African countries. Those comments have been pulled completely out of context.
The Jay-Z rant comes ahead of Sunday night’s Grammy Awards for music, at which Jay-Z is an awards nominee.
Jay-Z told CNN Trump’s alleged remarks initially invoked anger but are ultimately “hurtful” and “disappointing.”
Well, I have an opinion and I can’t help myself from responding on Twitter and with an article.
I guess Jay-Z should stop getting his news and information from ‘Fake News’ outlets.
