It was earlier this month that Donald Trump came under fire for referring to several foreign countries as a "sh*tihole." After rapper Jay-Z decided to give his thoughts, the president made sure to chime in.

Trump on Jay-Z

Donald Trump met with lawmakers from both the Republican and Democratic Party two weeks ago at the White House in an attempt to find common ground on the issue of immigration reform. When presented with the proposal of allowing protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and countries in Africa, the former host of "The Apprentice" dismissed the notion and referred to those nations as a "sh*thole." As expected, Trump quickly faced backlash for his remarks, with members of the media and others condemning the insulting comment.

Fast forward to earlier this week when rapper and media mogul Jay-Z was interviewed by CNN and ask to address Trump and his remarks. Jay-Z pushed back, saying Trump was being "hurtful" and that he was "looking down on a whole population of people and he's so misinformed." In response, Trump hit back during a January 28 post on Twitter.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday morning, Donald Trump went on the attack against Jay-Z. "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 tweeted out.

In a follow-up post, Donald Trump elaborated on the current state of the economy. "Our economy is better than it has been in many decades," Trump tweeted out.

"Businesses are coming back to America like never before. Chrysler, as an example, is leaving Mexico and coming back to the USA. Unemployment is nearing record lows," he added, while concluding, "We are on the right track!"

Twitter reacts

Not long after Donald Trump's tweets, critics on Twitter lashed out. "Black Unemployment has been trending downward for several years.

You did not break this trend-line. It's not your doing," one tweet read.

"Why? Did you block him so he can’t see your tweets?" one Twitter user wondered. "LOL oh now you’ve done it. The queen Beyonce is coming for ya!" an additional tweet stated.

"Someone tell Donald Trump that Jay-Z is a rich guy on a different level than him and doesn’t need to be wasting his time with scrubs," a follow-up tweet added. "Okay, sir, I will get on my Jay-Z phone and give that young fellow a talking to. I can’t believe you’re the president of the United States," yet another tweet added.
