President Donald Trump lashed out at “unfair” criticism of his son Chadwick after a White House official said the star was not included in an ad for the president’s campaign.
Trump has long criticized Bosemans performance on the reality show “The Apprentice” as a showman and a fraud, saying the actor was not hired to perform.
Boseman has been a vocal critic of Trump and his family, and in March accused the president of trying to destroy his family.
Trump responded to that allegation in a tweet Monday, saying, “Chadwick Boulton is a liar.
I never hired him to do his job.”
Trump also said that Bosemans endorsement of the GOP presidential nominee in the past was a political decision, and not a business one.
“The only reason I would have Chadwick on is because he’s my son,” Trump said.
“I didn’t want him to be on the show.”
Bosemans response was also in line with a statement released by his attorney on Monday.
“Chandwick Boudreaux is a great actor and an amazing human being.
He has had many successful acting careers, and has made a name for himself as a great comedic actor, director, producer and writer,” attorney Matthew Miller wrote.
“His decision to endorse Donald Trump for President of the United States is not based on politics, and he did not do so to disparage his father, but on his love of America and his desire to be a good father to his son.”
