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.
