Spike previously said Trump gave the "green light" for racists in America. In May, when asked a question at the Cannes Film Festival about his decision to include footage of the 2017 Charlottesville protest at the end of the movie, Lee made a broader point about the Trump administration.
On Twitter, Trump was derided by some for his response.
Oscars night is always filled with emotional speeches, and this telecast was no exception. The date, the 24th.
The 2019 Oscars were a win for films telling stories from a range of racial and cultural perspectives, marking a major shift three years after the movie industry's top awards show was slammed for overlooking work by nonwhite artists. They chose to create a story of a white man's redemption and self-realisation using an extraordinary black life and a history of black oppression in this country as their backdrop.
He separately mentioned that his grandmother was a graduate of the largely black Spelman College, despite her mother having been a slave. "We will have love and wisdom when we regain our humanity".
"It will be a powerful moment", he said.
"The 2020 presidential election is around the corner".
The decision to hand the best film Oscar to "Green Book" continued to be debated Monday, long after the last Champagne glass had finally been emptied.
"The View" co-host Meghan McCain has wedged herself into the current feud between President Trump and Spike Lee following Sunday night's Oscars, electing to side with the latter over the former. "He returned to his seat when the speeches were over".
He then came back to his seat, where he turned his back on the stage during Green Book acceptance speeches.
It's a reaction Lee found unsurprising.
He added the violence had been perpetrated on "many sides".
Jordan Peele, a producer on "BlacKkKlansman", was also visibly upset by the win and "reportedly didn't clap" at the announcement along with other members of the "BlacKkKlansman" team. "Every time somebody's driving somebody I lose". "They change the narrative".
According to the Post, previously, the Brooklyn-raised Lee had only received a Best Screenplay nod for Do The Right Thing in 1990 and a Best Documentary Feature nomination in 1998 for 4 Little Girls. Also, Don Shirley's family have objected vociferously to the way the film portrays him (Mr Shirley died in 2013), prompting actor Mahershala Ali, who plays him in the film, to apologise to the family for any offence caused.
