Donald Trump responds to Jay-Z's criticism on his policies

Donald Trump is firing back at Jay-Z after the hip hop star described Trump’s “shithole countries” comment as 'disappointing and hurtful.'

"Everyone feels anger, but after the anger it's really hurtful because he's looking down on a whole population of people and he's so misinformed because these places have beautiful people," he told Van Jones on the premiere of CNN's The Van Jones Show, where the rapper addressed Trump.

Asked by Van Jones whether it's okay for Trump "to say terrible things but put money in our pockets" amid Trump's claims that unemployment for African Americans has dropped, Jay-Z said no, "because 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."

Well, Trump fired back at Jay-Z on Twitter:

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