“I’m beginning to lose confidence in the Trump administration,” Letterman confesses before asking Jay-Z, “What do you think of that?”

“I think it’s actually a great thing,” Jay-Z replies. That is not to say the “99 Problems” rapper believes the U.S. is problem-free, but he argues that Trump is “forcing people to… have a conversation and band together and work together.

“You can’t really address something that’s not revealed,” says the musician. “[Trump] is bringing out an ugly side of America that we wanted to believe was gone… We still gotta deal with it. We have to have tough conversations – talk about the N-word, talk about why white men are so privileged in this country.”

Host Letterman has no problem sharing his opinion about the U.S. president. “I’m tellin’ you, [if] you’re having a debate over whether a guy’s a racist, chances are that guy’s a racist,” he says of Trump.

Jay-Z’s appearance on “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” airs Friday on Netflix.
