Michael Jackson During A Town Hall Meeting
In fact, the former Jackson 5 member takes issue with Trump's assertion about being "very good friends" with the late Michael Jackson, a claim he made during a CNN GOP Town Hall Thursday night.
"Michael Jackson was actually a very good friend of mine," Trump told Anderson Cooper. "He was an unbelievably talented guy. He lost his confidence.
You know, the plastic surgeons. He was an unbelievable talent who actually lost his confidence.
Believe it or not, when you lose your confidence in something you can even lose your talent."
Jermaine Jackson doesn't sound like a Donald Trump supporter.
"Michael Jackson was actually a very good friend of mine," Trump told Anderson Cooper, when asked about his musical taste.
Trump said Jackson's career suffered in his later years because of a lack of confidence brought about by bad plastic surgery.
"He had the worst," Trump said. "He had people that did numbers on him that were just unbelievable. You know, the plastic surgeons.
Trump also said Jackson lived in Trump Tower at one point and got married in one of Trump's properties.
Jermaine Jackson wasn't denying his brother's friendship with Trump. He just didn't like what Trump said.
"Name-dropping Michael don't make you cool and won't win you votes. Especially when using botched facts," Jackson wrote.
"Michael's confidence was affected by the pressures, injustice and vitriol of external circumstances. Period."
