Director Spike Lee has responded to President Trump's criticism of him during an awards ceremony.

According to Fox News:

Spike Lee doesn't mind if President Donald Trump thinks he's racist.

Trump blasted Lee after the director's Oscar acceptance speech for "BlacKkKlansman," in which he never mentioned Trump by name, but urged voters to "do the right thing" and support love over 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 Monday.

...

“They did the same thing with the African-American players who were kneeling, trying to make it into an anti-American thing, an anti-patriotic thing, and an anti-military thing,” he added. “But no one’s going for that.”

Lee has announced that he will now be traveling to Thailand to film a new movie.
