"Hollywood, I don't call them the elites - I think the elites are the people they go after, in many cases", the president said.
"Liberal Hollywood is Racist at the highest level, and with great Anger and Hate!" tweeted Trump. What they're doing, with the form of motion pictures they're placing out, it is truly very harmful for our nation. "What Hollywood is doing is a tremendous disservice to our country", said Trump.
Its plot sees people who have been kidnapped from traditionally Republican bastions such as Wyoming, Mississippi and Orlando, Florida waking up in a field surrounded by "elite" hunters, who proceed to gun them down. They create their own violence, and then try to blame others.
The president, whose star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame has been repeatedly vandalised, also said "all of the heads of the biggest companies" in Hollywood would be meeting with him. "They are the true Racists, and are very bad for our Country!"
"They're treating conservatives very unfairly".

"'The Hunt" has already proven to be controversial, as a marketing blitz that was due to kick off last week was postponed due to the recent mass shootings in the US.

The Hunt, from Universal and horror specialists Blumhouse Productions, is due to be released September 27.
Politico reported earlier this week that the White House is drafting an executive order regarding "anti-conservative bias" in social media.
