Donald Trump accuses Jussie Smollet of hate crime

Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to call out Jussie Smollet on his fake attack in Chicago, saying the incident was a hate crime against him and his supporters.

The gay black actor said in January that he’d been the victim of a hate-fueled attack in Chicago, but police announced weeks later that he had staged the attack.

The president, who is in Japan to meet the nation’s new emperor, appeared to suggest that those who wanted to ‘Make America Great Again’ were the real victims of the actor’s actions.

‘In addition to great incompetence and corruption, The Smollett case in Chicago is also about a Hate Crime. Remember, “MAGA COUNTRY DID IT!” That turned out to be a total lie, had nothing to do with “MAGA COUNTRY.” Serious stuff, and not even an apology to millions of people!’ Trump said in the Saturday tweet.

In March, prosecutors suddenly dropped the charges against the actor, drawing criticism from then-Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Daily Mail reports.
Smollett had been accused of disorderly conduct and filing a false police report about his alleged attack.
This is not the first time Trump has criticized Smollett over the case.
In fact this is the third time Trump has mentioned the Smollett case – he voiced his grievance once Smollett was released by Cook County and later mentioned him during a rallying cry in Wisconsin.
He also voiced his displeasure with people who file fake police reports.
