Jeezy isn’t fond of President Trump’s reaction to Coronavirus outbreak.

While speaking with MSNBC on Friday (April 3), the Atlanta native shared his thoughts on how the 45th President has been handling the pandemic. “Trump, he’s one-of-a-kind, because it takes a different type of leader to make things about him,” Jeezy confessed during the interview.

“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,’” he said in reference to Trump’s famous slogan. “We gone make America greater than it’s ever been with or without him.”

This isn’t the first time that Jeezy has spoken about the impact of the virus. As his fans might recall, the “Trap Or Die” rapper confessed that his sister works in the healthcare field and praised her for her selfless work ethic.

“I want to take this time to shout out the people like my sister who’s a nurse. I see it in her eyes when I talk to her on the phone. She’s tired and she’s trying her best. She’s on the front lines, so we salute you,” he said in the video shared to social media. “Anybody that’s like you lets take this time to salute all the doctors and nurses the personnel that’s out there fighting hard for us everyday that’s fighting this war with an invisible enemy. Let’s salute the grocery store workers, the UPS drivers, the mailman and anybody that’s out there still working that keep things going for us. Salute them because we are at war at invisible enemy and I know we intend to win that.”

He concluded, “There’s not enough to go around and they’re trying to keep the numbers down so we got to do our part. I’m not going to act like I’m a genius or a professional at this but at the same time I just care about my people and what’s going on with ya’ll man so let’s stay prayed up. Lets do as much as we can to do our part man. We can bring this thing back around.”
