Trump knocks Spike Lee over ‘racist hit on your president’ in director’s Oscars speech

President Trump on Monday lashed out at Spike Lee after the director used his acceptance speech at the Academy Awards to urge viewers and attendees to choose “love versus hate” in the 2020 election.

“Be nice if Spike Lee could read his notes, or better yet not have to use notes at all, when doing his racist hit on your President, who has done more for African Americans (Criminal Justice Reform, Lowest Unemployment numbers in History, Tax Cuts,etc.) than almost any other Pres!” Trump tweeted.

Lee, who won the Oscar for best adapted screenplay for his work on “BlacKkKlansman,” did not explicitly mention Trump in his acceptance speech on Sunday night.

He praised “our ancestors who helped build this country” after invoking the history of slavery and thanked his grandmother, who helped put him through college.
