American President Donald Trump has never shied away from calling out people on social media. Usually he attacks the Democrats, 'Crooked Hillary', the former Obama administration or individual politicians or journalists who criticise him.

While he's copped a fair amount of flak from people all over the world, Mr Trump has hit back at one unlikely critic: 21-time Grammy Award winner Jay-Z.

The US President wrote: "Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!"

The leader of one of the biggest countries on the planet felt the need to hit back after Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, spoke at how 'hurtful' Mr Trump's alleged 'shithole country' remarks were.

In a wide-ranging interview with CNN, the 48-year-old rapper said: "Everyone feels anger, but after the anger it's really hurtful because he's looking down on a whole population of people, and he's so misinformed because these places have beautiful people."

Marshall Mathers called out Trump at the BET Awards show with a brutal freestyle rap and has followed that up with a string of other savage put-downs. His latest comment came during an interview with Billboard, where he said: "I know that Hillary [Clinton] had her flaws, but you know what? Anything would have been better [than Trump].

"A fucking turd would have been better as a president."

Put-down after put-down and Trump has seemingly paid no attention, yet he raced to social media to try and savage Jay-Z. What does Em have to do to get a response, eh?
