Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has slammed popular American rapper Jay Z for using indecent words during an election concert he held in support of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. “I actually like Jay Z, but, you know, the language last night, oh, ooh. I was thinking, Maybe I’ll just try it. Should I use that language if I want to,” Trump told thousands of his supporters in Tampa, Florida on Saturday.’

“Can you imagine if I said that? He used every word in the book. I won’t even use the initials because I’ll get in trouble. They’ll get me in trouble. He used every word in the book last night,” he said referring to the songs sung by Jay Z during the concern in Cleveland, Ohio on Friday night, attended by Clinton herself.

Trump later compared the Cleveland crowd with that of his rally at Hershey in Pennsylvania on Friday night. “By the way, in Hershey, Pennsylvania last night, we had an arena. We had 27,000 people show up, maybe they couldn’t get in. Far more than Jay-Z had with their free tickets. Free tickets. Far more. And Beyonce. And I like them both,” he said.

Further slamming Clinton, Trump said, “But he (Jay Z) used language last night that was so bad, and then Hillary said I did not like Donald Trump’s lewd language. My lewd language. I tell you I’ve never said what he said in my life. But that shows you the phoniness of politicians and the phoniness of the whole system folks”.
