Legendary music producer Quincy Jones accused President Donald Trump and "uneducated rednecks" of stoking racial tensions in America, while also claiming that he once dated Ivanka Trump.

"The racism in the North is disguised. You never know where you stand. That's why what's happening now is good, because people are saying they are racists who didn't used to say it. Now we know," Jones, 84, said in an interview with Vulture published Wednesday.

The 27-time Grammy award winner also claimed that he "used to date" the President's eldest daughter, claiming that "she's a fine m-----------." CNN has reached out to Ivanka Trump's representative for comment and has not heard back.

Jones also weighed in on 2020 presidential campaign rumors surrounding his longtime friend Oprah Winfrey.

"I don't think (Oprah) should run. She doesn't have the chops for it," Jones said.

"A symphony conductor knows more about how to lead than most businesspeople - more than Trump does," he added. "He doesn't know s---. Someone who knows about real leadership wouldn't have as many people against him as he does. He's a f------ idiot."

Jones knew Trump as a celebrity business mogul before he ran for president.

"I used to hang out with (Trump). He's a crazy m-----------. Limited mentally - a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can't stand him," Jones said.
