MISSING THE POINT

Trump Brags of His ‘Black Unemployment’ Track Record to Jay-Z

President Trump embarked on a Twitter feud with Jay-Z on Sunday morning, claiming his policies have reduced black unemployment rates in response to the rapper’s recent criticism. “Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!” Trump wrote. He was apparently responding to an interview with CNN late Saturday in which Jay-Z called the president a “superbug.” Jay-Z slammed Trump for reportedly calling Haiti and African nations “shithole countries,” comments which he called “disappointing” and “hurtful.” He went on to describe Trump as the outcome of racism not being addressed properly. “You don’t take care of the problem. … As those things grow, you create a superbug. Then now we have Donald Trump, the superbug,” he said. Jay-Z said it wouldn’t matter if Trump increased employment for blacks, because “it’s not about money at the end of the day.” “That’s missing the whole point. You treat people like human beings,” he said.
