Donald Trump has already taken to Twitter to call Lee's powerful speech a "racist hit on your President." Trump went on to brag that he "has done more for African Americans than any other Pres!"
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 25, 2019
The reaction follows a speech that heard Lee paying homage to his ancestors and encouraging Americans to make a change in the upcoming 2020 election.
"We will have love and wisdom when we regain our humanity. It will be a powerful moment," Lee said onstage. "The 2020 presidential election is around the corner. Let's all mobilize. Let's all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let's do the right thing."
Lee wasn't the only celebrity to take jabs at the POTUS last night, but so far, Trump hasn't personally attacked Barbra Streisand, Javier Bardem or Maya Rudolph.
Watch Lee's acceptance speech below.
