Donald Trump recently spoke about his experience in the 2016 elections and his path to victory, and he had some exciting things to say about the whole ordeal, some of which raised a few eyebrows in public, judging by responses to the President’s statements.
Trump claimed that he did not need Beyonce, Jay-Z or Bruce Springsteen, and explained how Springsteen, in particular, would do a couple of songs and leave, taking everyone with him.
And then, that left Hillary Clinton speaking in front of the same crowd as before. The former reality TV star turned politician said: “I didn’t need Beyoncé and Jay-Z. I didn’t need little Bruce Springsteen.”
And it looks like it did not take long for the negative responses to Trump’s odd remarks to start pouring in, with many people claiming that the President had no idea what he was talking about and that he had crossed a significant line by insulting several prominent celebrities.
It is not the first time Trump has spoken out about prominent public figures negatively, however, and the President certainly does not seem to mind all the negativity that he occasionally draws with these statements.
For now, Trump does not seem to be backing down from his words and has continued to insist that he meant what he said.
It is not clear if he is going to relent in the face of the massive crowd of people that have been targeting him with their comments ever since he made his remark, as it does seem like quite a lot of people have come out of the woodwork to express their disapproval of the President’s statements.
In a past interview, the legendary rocker and songwriter bashed Trump by saying: “[Trump] has no interest in uniting the country, really, and has an interest in doing the opposite and dividing us, which he does on an almost daily basis.”
He continued: “So that’s simply a crime against humanity, as far as I’m concerned. It’s an awful, awful message to send out into the world if you’re in that job and in that position. It’s just an ugly, awful message.”
Jay-Z called Trump a bug and added: “You don’t take the trash out, and you keep spraying whatever over it to make it acceptable. As those things grow, you create a superbug. And then now we have Donald Trump, the superbug. I’m being funny, I say that, too.”
However, he added: “Somewhere along his lineage, something happened to him. Something happened to him, and he is in pain, and he is expressing it this sort of way.”
It is unlikely that those superstars will hit back.
