President Trump took a swipe at film director Spike Lee in an early morning tweet Monday.

The president said, “be nice if Lee could read his notes, or better yet not have to use notes at all when doing his racist hit on your president.”

He went on to say he’s done more for the African American community than any other president, and referenced his landmark criminal justice reform, the lowest unemployment numbers in U.S. history and tax cuts.

His remarks came after Lee appeared to slam the president in his Oscars acceptance speech Sunday, when he called for the left to “rise up” against him in 2020.
