When he was asked about a so-called anti-conservative bias on social media, Trump used the opportunity to talk about show business.
Trump's latest assault comes after he condemned the violence depicted in Hollywood films while talking to reporters Friday morning at the White House before departing for NY and to his compound in Bedminster, NJ.
"The movie coming out is made in order to inflame and cause chaos. But Hollywood is really bad", the president said.
It's unclear what Trump was referring to, but Universal Pictures has faced backlash in recent days for promoting "The Hunt", a satirical film about liberal elites hunting "deplorables" from the rural USA for sport. Advertisements for the film were pulled from major networks on the heels of last weekend's double mass shootings.
China calls Hong Kong protests 'terrorism' as flights cancelled
"All passengers are advised to leave the terminal buildings as soon as possible", a statement from the Airport Authority said. In a statement on Monday, Hong Kong's Airport Authority said they were cancelling all flights that were not yet checked in.
While the film doesn't explicitly say the people being hunted are supporters of Trump, the people are described by one of the elites as "deplorables", a term coined by former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It's possible he was responding to reports involving the upcoming movie The Hunt.
Perhaps Trump was reacting to the celebrities who, over the past two days, tweeted their intentions to boycott chic fitness brands Equinox and SoulCycle over plans by owner Stephen Ross to host a fundraiser for the president.
The president, a frequent target for criticism from celebrities, said Hollywood is "very bad" for the U.S. and accused it of trying to "inflame and cause chaos". You talk about racist - Hollywood is racist. Hollywood is racist. What they're doing, with the kind of movies they're putting out, is actually very unsafe for our country.
"The Hunt" is scheduled to be released in theaters next month. They treat conservatives, Republicans totally different than they treat others. "What Hollywood is doing is a tremendous disservice to our country", he said in his address.
