Samuel L. Jackson is Latest Person to be Criticized by Trump on Twitter


Donald Trump strikes again on Twitter — and this time, at actor Samuel L. Jackson.

The Republican presidential candidate tweeted at Jackson on Tuesday, writing, “I don’t know @SamuelLJackson, to best of my knowledge haven’t played golf w/him & think he does too many TV commercials—boring. Not a fan.”

Trump is referencing an interview that Jackson had with United Airlines’ Rhapsody magazine, where he said that Trump isn’t trustworthy on the course.

He said that he golfs with Trump from time to time and that when asked who’s a better golfer, Jackson responded, “Oh, I am for sure. I don’t cheat.”

He also has said that Trump billed him in the past at one of his clubs without his knowledge.

“But it’s funny — last week or so, I actually got a bill from Trump National Golf Club,” he told Rhapsody. “And I haven’t been there in four or five years, so I had my assistant call. They said it was for membership dues. And I said, ‘I’m not a member,’ and they said, ‘Yeah, you are — you have a member number.’ Apparently he’d made me a member of one of his golf clubs, and I didn’t even know it!”

The Washington Post once looked at Trump’s golf history to decide whether he is a cheater like many of his competitors on the course accused him of being.

Jackson, who was nominated for an Academy Award in 1994 for his performance in “Pulp Fiction,” hasn’t tweeted a response to Trump. His last tweet was Monday, where he shared a selfie from Instagram of himself and the Miss Universe winner, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach from the Philippines.

Trump often uses his Twitter account to slam 2016 White House rivals, but also to share his opinions, whether positive or negative, about celebrities or other well known people.

In the past, he’s fired Twitter insults at other celebrities such as Rosie O’Donnell, Cher, and Russel Brand.
