He then quickly tweeted him a second time writing:

Within minutes both of the posts had notched up hundreds of thousands of likes on the social media platform.

The Academy also re-tweeted the first message from its official account.

Mr Trump tweeted that Meryl Streep was “overrated” after she criticised him during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes where she was honoured with the Cecil B DeMille award for her outstanding contribution to entertainment.

A few people warned Kimmel he was “going to start a war” by tweeting the President.

Mr Trump has yet to respond to the tweets.
