After hip hop artist Jay-Z went on “The Van Jones Show” Saturday on CNN and responded to “sh*tholes” by calling President Donald Trump a “superbug,” he said said that putting money in the pockets African-Americans through a surging economy doesn’t excuse disparaging remarks because “money doesn’t equate to happiness.”

“Everyone feels anger [about the reported ‘sh*thole’ comments], 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,” Jay-Z said. “You don’t take the trash out. You keep spraying whatever over it to make it acceptable and then, you know, as those things grow, then you create a superbug. And then now we have Donald Trump, the superbug.”

“Donald Trump is a human being, too. Somewhere along his lineage something happened to him […] and he’s in pain and he’s expressing it in this sort of way,” he continued.

Trump reacted to the CNN interview early 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!” he tweeted.
