A feud seems to have begun between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and “Pulp Fiction” actor Samuel L. Jackson after the latter said that Trump cheated while playing golf. The comments were made by Jackson in an interview to United Airlines’ Hemisphere magazine.
Trump reacted to the comment Tuesday by denying that he ever played golf with Jackson and called him "boring."
Late Tuesday, Jackson reportedly posted a photograph of an alleged bill from Trump’s New Jersey golf club on his Instagram account after claiming in the interview to Hemisphere that Trump’s club sent him the bill even though Jackson never registered for a membership.
"A bill from the guy that doesn't know me & never golfed with me! I'm gonna Block his a-- too," Jackson’s post, which was deleted later, read, according to Business Insider.
When Trump was referred to as Jackson’s “golf buddy” by the interviewer, Jackson said: “I would never say buddies,” adding: “Or friends. I’ve golfed with him.”
The "Django Unchained" actor also denied understanding Trump and knowing what the Republican frontrunner hopes to accomplish by running for president and told Hemisphere magazine: “Last week or so, I actually got a bill from Trump National Golf Club. 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: “I’m not payin’ that! But no — I don’t know what the Don’s up to. Interesting character. More P.T. Barnum than politician. I don’t think he believes half the things he says.”
When asked who is better at golf, Jackson said: “Oh, I am, for sure,” adding: “I don’t cheat.”
“Black-ish” actor Anthony Anderson commented on Trump’s claim of not knowing Jackson and said that he was there with Jackson when Trump and him played golf. The post by Anderson was retweeted by Jackson.
I don’t know @SamuelLJackson, to best of my knowledge haven't played golf w/him & think he does too many TV commercials—boring. Not a fan.
