The "Solo: A Star Wars Story" director was responding to a critic who insisted its "only negativity from Hollywood & Democrats" when it comes to Trump, after the Oscar winner downplayed the apparent successes of the President's economy.
"In the entertainment industry many who have known/worked w/ Trump think that while his reality show was fun and ran a long time, he's a self-serving, dishonest, morally bankrupt ego maniac who doesn't care about anything or anyone but his Fame & bank account & is hustling the US," the star tweeted.
Howard went on to defend the entertainment industry after another Twitter user accused Hollywood of being "amoral elitists who hate average Americans."
"Honestly not what I've seen or felt throughout my lifetime from the vast majority of people in the entertainment business," the "Happy Days" star responded. "In fact, I gotta say it's the opposite. Most are not from LA or NY to begin with. Now Trump is both an elite and a reality show star."
Howard previously appeared in the 2016 satirical movie "Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie", which starred Johnny Depp and took aim at the businessman-turned-politician during his presidential campaign.
