Jay-Z reacts to Trump’s reported ‘shithole’ comment

American rapper, Jay-Z has reacted to the reported ‘shithole’ comment by US President Donald Trump.

Jay-Z, in an interview broadcast yesterday on CNN said that Trump’s belittling remark overshadowed any employment data.

According to the wealthy rapper, “Money doesn’t equate to happiness.

“It doesn’t. That’s missing the whole point.

“You treat people like human beings, then that’s the main point.”

Jay-Z said that Trump’s election laid bare the persistence of racism in the United States.

He further voiced dismay at Trump’s reported comment that he did not want immigrants coming from “shithole” countries in Africa or predominantly black Haiti.

Jay-Z added, “It’s real hurtful. Because it’s looking down at a whole population of people and it’s so misinformed because these places have beautiful people and beautiful everything.”
