Donald Trump has a new feud with an unlikely foe.
On Tuesday the Republican presidential front-runner tweeted a message stating he didn’t know “The Hateful Eight” star Samuel L. Jackson and was not a fan.
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.

Jackson appeared to first find out about his feud on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Tuesday night.
Meyers informed Jackson that Trump took issue with the fact that Jackson claimed in an interview that he was a better golfer than Trump. He showed Jackson the tweet Trump sent earlier.
“I met him a lot,” Jackson said. “I played golf with him — I actually played golf with him with Anthony Anderson one day.”
Jackson then recalled another golf encounter he had with Trump and someone else who he said could verify that Trump knows him.
The actor said Trump called him and asked him if he would play golf with “a friend” of his at his club in New York and when Jackson arrived he found the friend was former President Bill Clinton.
“Bill and I went out and played. Don showed up in the middle of the round and we went into the clubhouse and he gave Bill a jacket, because it was a little chilly.”
Meyers jokingly responded by telling Jackson that if they could prove Trump lied about knowing him it “might be the thing that finally brings down his campaign.”
“Let’s get on that,” Jackson replied.

Jackson retorted with a copy of the bill he got from one of Trump’s clubs but he quickly deleted it because he forgot to block out his home address.

And there were some who told Jackson it might not be such a good idea to have his address all over social media.
@SamuelLJackson errr, humm, you might want to blank out your home address!!??
