Here we go…

Russell Simmons slams Donald Trump just days after Trump announced his run for President of the United States.

On Saturday afternoon, the fashion designer and Def Jam co-founder headed to Twitter to share his thoughts on the “Celebrity Apprentice,” star as well as nominate a famous reality star, whom he believes could do a better job running the country than Trump.

Kim K being better president then Trump?” he tweeted. “A sweet compassionate celebrity is better than a conservative angry one. No diss on either person.”

Simmons’ latest jab comes on the heels of him criticizing Trump during an interview with HuffPost Live. “I don’t like his politics. I don’t think he’d be good for America at all,” Simmons said regarding Trump heading to the White House. “He makes a lot of news. Doesn’t have as much influence as, say, Kim Kardashian.”
He concluded, “She would probably be a better president, in my opinion.”

Is it just us or do the repeated jabs suggest something more is going on here between these two? While Trump himself has yet to respond to Simmons, the Republican candidate insists he can change America for the better.

“I’ll be the greatest jobs president that God ever created,” he shared from Trump Tower when announcing his candidacy. “I have a great love for our country, but it is a country that is in serious trouble… Americans deserve better than what they get from their politicians — who are all talk and no action.”

Unfortunately (or not) for Trump, he’s not getting a vote from Simmons come Election Day…
