President Trump on Friday mocked New York Times opinion columnist Thomas Friedman’s appearance and dismissed the writer as a “phony” after he penned a column calling the president a “racist” and “woman-abusing jerk.”

Trump reacted in a series of tweets to a Friedman column published Tuesday, titled “Trump’s Going to Get Re-elected, Isn’t He?,” in which Friedman fretted that the president will win the 2020 election if Democrats don’t nominate a centrist candidate capable of winning over moderate voters.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Thomas ‘the Chin’ Friedman, a weak and pathetic sort of guy, writes columns for The New York Times in between rounds of his favorite game, golf,” Trump tweeted. “Two weeks ago, while speaking to a friend on his cell phone, I unfortunately ended up speaking to Friedman.”

The president continued in two additional tweets, writing, “We spoke for a while and he could not have been nicer or more respectful to your favorite President, me. Then I saw the column he wrote, “Trump Will Be Re-elected, Won’t He?” He called me a Racist, which I am not, and said Rhode Island went from economically bad to great in 5 years because the Governor of the State did a good job. That may be true but she could not have done it without the tremendous economic success of our Country & the turnaround that my Administration has caused. Really Nasty to me in his average I.Q. Columns, kissed my a.. on the call. Phony!”

Freidman hit back in a series of Twitter posts, as seen below:
