Real-estate mogul Donald Trump took a shot at Samuel Jackson on Tuesday, after the actor suggested that he cheats at golf.

Trump wrote on Twitter that Jackson "does too many commercials" and that he's "not a fan" of Jackson.

This was apparently in response to Jackson's recent interview in United Airlines' Rhapsody Magazine, in which Jackson complained that one of Trump's golf clubs had charged him without his knowledge.

"I've golfed with him," Jackson told the magazine for its latest issue.

"But it's funny — last week or so, I actually got a bill from Trump National Golf Club," he continued. "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!"

Jackson also said Trump was an "interesting character" and "more P.T. Barnum than politician."

The magazine finished by asking Jackson whether he was a better golfer than Trump.

"I am, fore sure," he replied, reportedly smiling as he added: "I don't cheat."

But Trump wrote Tuesday that "to the best of my knowledge" he's never played golf with the famous actor:


Trump, who owns a number of golf clubs and resorts, has previously faced allegations of cheating at golf. Last September, The Washington Post quoted three people, including rock musician Alice Cooper, accusing him of cheating.

The Republican presidential front-runner similarly denied having ever played golf with Cooper. He also denied knowing another one of his accusers, Mark Mulvoy, the former managing editor of Sports Illustrated.

As for his third accuser, sportswriter Rick Reilly, Trump made it clear that he was not a fan of his work.

"I always thought he was a terrible writer," Trump told The Post. "I absolutely killed him, and he wrote very inaccurately. I would say that he's a very dishonest writer."
