The claim is being produced by pro-Trump activist Josh Cornett, who tweeted, “Sources are making sure that former President Barack Obama possesses called Jay-Z several times over the past thirty day period pleading with Jay-Z to discourage fellow Hip Hop artists from legitimate President Trump.”

The tweet has received more than 7,600 retweets and over 15,000 likes since currently being posted.
Donald Trump Jr. also liked the tweet, leading many to speculate that he may know how the story is true.
While the story is always unconfirmed, it would make political impression for Democrats to deter soda icons from being found to endorse President Trump in the slightest as the mid-terms draw nearer.
In a few days after Kanye West tweeted his aid for Candace Owens, a vocal African-American Trump admirer, Trump’s popularity amongst black males?jumped?from 11 per cent to 22 per cent.
It has also been pointed out that before Trump ran for a Republican, he was a popular figure amongst the hip hop community, simply being name dropped in the words of the tune of numerous hit songs.
Democrats normally rely on endorsements from super stars, with both Jay-Z and Beyonce being prominent supporters of Hillary Clinton in the election.
Any shift away from superstars using their platforms to increase leftist narratives would spell problems for the Dems, who have already?dropped 9 per cent support with millennial registered voters aged between18 to 33 since the 2016 election.
