The Hollywood actor best known for his role in the gun-violent film ‘Pulp Fiction,’ Samuel L. Jackson took to Twitter to criticize President Trump Saturday after he made repeated pushes for arming trained teachers as a way to address school shootings.
“Can someone that’s been in a Gunfight tell that Muthaf—- that’s Never been in a Gunfight, the flaws of his Arm The Teachers plan??!!” Jackson tweeted on Friday.
The tweet has been shared more than 61k times and loved more than 200,000 times on Twitter.

Jackson and Trump have exchanged words in the past. When he was the president-elect, Trump responded to accusations made by Jackson about his cheating at golf.
Trump’s reply: “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.”
But Jackson then doubled down with a TV appearance stating he could prove he had played with Trump. According to Jackson, he was invited to play with Trump and former president Bill Clinton. Then, not too long afterwards, Jackson received an invoice for membership dues to the Trump-owned golf course. When Jackson called the course, officials told him that he had a membership number on file. Jackson claims Trump assigned him a number without his knowledge.
Trump then tweeted again, suddenly recalling the event. “I don’t cheat at golf but @SamuelLJackson cheats—with his game he has no choice—and stop doing commercials!” He followed up with a second tweet: “Don’t like @SamuelLJackson’s golf swing. Not athletic. I’ve won many club championships. Play him for charity!”
