In an interview with United Airlines’ Rhapsody magazine, Samuel L. Jackson said Donald Trump cheats at golf.

"But it's funny — last week or so, I actually got a bill from Trump National Golf Club. And I haven't been there in four or five years, so I had my assistant call. They said it was for membership dues. And I said, 'I'm not a member,' and they said, 'Yeah, you are — you have a member number.' Apparently he'd made me a member of one of his golf clubs, and I didn't even know it," Jackson told the magazine.

Jackson was asked who the better golfer was, to which he replied, "Oh, I am, for sure. I don't cheat."

Trump responded how you think: with weirdly specific criticism.

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 told Access Hollywood that it is "awful" Trump is worried about him.

Trump's been accused of cheating on the golf course plenty before, most notably in a detailed investigation by the Washington Post.

"When it comes to cheating, he's an 11 on a scale of one to 10," sportswriter Rick Reilly to the Post.

Trump didn't like that either.

"I always thought he was a terrible writer. I absolutely killed him, and he wrote very inaccurately. I would say that he's a very dishonest writer," Trump told the Post.
