Trump resumes Twitter spat with O'Donnell

Press Association logoPress Association 12/05/2017

Donald Trump has resumed his Twitter row with comedian Rosie O'Donnell over his sacking of FBI director James Comey.

In a busy day for the US president, in which he signed two executive orders and had his daily intelligence briefing, he found time to return to the decade-long spat.

He quoted a tweet sent by O'Donnell in December in which she called for Comey's dismissal.

"We finally agree on something Rosie," he wrote.

O'Donnell's original remark was in response to the bureau chief's decision to inform the US of an investigation into Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the presidential election.

She did not see the latest message as an opportunity for reconciliation, replying: "U don't even realize the kind of trouble u r in - comeys people believe in him - for real - they have the proof - u r a sadistic man".

The pair have often traded blows on social media since a rift formed in 2006 while she was a co-host on US talk show The View.

She mocked his hair on the show and also brought up his bankruptcies and called him a "snake-oil salesman".

Trump, then the host of The Apprentice in the US, responded by telling an entertainment show she was a "a slob" with a "fat, ugly face" and threatened to sue her.
