Jeezy Criticizes President Trump Over Coronavirus Response


Rapper Jeezy has condemned President Donald Trump's response to the coronavirus, accusing him of putting his ego before American lives.

"Trump, he's one-of-a-kind, because it takes a different type of leader to make things about him," Jeezy said during an appearance on MSNBC. "I feel like a lot of times you see his ego. Right now, you know, it's about the people. To me, you talking about 'Make America Great.' We gone make America greater than it's ever been with or without him."

Trump first appeared to downplay the severity of the coronavirus outbreak. Then when cases of infection began to spike nationally particularly in New York, Trump responded to the requests for additional medical supplies by suggesting that perhaps medical practitioners were stealing medical masks and other vital equipment -- and asked reporters to investigate.

But on Sunday, Trump said the following about the upcoming week.

"This will be probably the toughest week, between this week and the next week. And there will be a lot of death, unfortunately."
