Donald Trump continues to troll Jussie Smollett and recently used Tuesday's the National Republican Congressional Committee to take yet another jab at the 'Empire' actor.

According to The Hill, Trump said:

“How about the guy from Chicago? The actor that nobody ever heard of... He said he got taken out by ‘MAGA country.’ I said, ‘What the hell was that?’ I guess that’s a hate crime, right?"

Smollett was accused of staging a hate crime where he claimed he was beaten, had bleach was thrown on his and a noose tied around his neck. He also claimed that his attacker yelled: "This is MAGA country."

All charges against him have been dropped and the president is now rallying to have him investigated once more.

"FBI & DOJ to review the outrageous Jussie Smollett case in Chicago. It is an embarrassment to our Nation!" he tweeted after the news broke that Smollett had all 16 indictments against him dropped by the CPD.
