The Democratic nominee had Jay Z, Beyonce and Chance the Rapper perform at a free concert in Cleveland over the weekend in an effort to appeal to young voters.

Trump criticized Clinton for doing so during his rally in Tampa later that day.

“We don’t need Jay Z to fill up arenas,” Trump told the crowd. “We do it the old fashion way. We do it the old fashion way, folks. We fill them up because you love what we’re saying and you want to ‘Make America Great Again.’ That’s about it.”

“I actually like Jay Z, but you know the language last night — oh. Can you imagine if I said that? He used every word in the book — I won’t even use the initials because they’ll get me in trouble.”


Clinton’s campaign trail has been littered with celebrities the last few months, including Lena Dunham, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and LeBron James. (RELATED: Miley Cyrus On Hillary Clinton: We Don’t Always Get What We Want)
