President Trump has once again taken aim at 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett, calling him a "disgrace to our country."

Trump attended a political rally on Saturday night in Green Bay, Wisconsin where he slammed the actor.

"That case in Chicago is a disgrace to our nation... I didn’t hear that term until that third-rate actor in Chicago went out and he said, 'I was beaten up by MAGA country.' Can you believe it?" Trump during the rally said as the crowd booed. 

Trump continued: "Turned out to be a total lie."

Trump has thrown jabs at Smollett since he was officially made a suspect in the alleged hate crime hoax. When the city of Chicago dropped all charges against Smollett, the president hopped on Twitter to demand that he be investigated by the Department of Justice and the FBI.
