The View’s Barbara Walters is fed up with Donald Trumps anti-Obama rants. Walters and Trump are longtime friends but Walters says enough is enough. During a panel discussion on her talk show, Walters criticized Trump’s offer of $5 million to the president‘s charity of choice to turn over his college application and passport materials, to prove his U.S. citizenship.

Walters, directly addressed the camera and said the following:

“Donald, you and I have known each other for many years and you know that I am your friend and I think you are a brilliant businessman and you are great on television and you have a fascinating personality. Donald, you’re making a fool of yourself. You’re not hurting Obama, you’re hurting Donald and that hurts me because you’re a decent man. Stop it. Get off it, Donald.”

Trump fired back at Walters via Twitter.

“Barbara, unfortunately you’ve missed the entire point of my announcement–you just don’t get it!” he tweeted.

He later said Walters “will apologize to me just like she did when I was right about @Rosie. Besides, I get great ratings on The View.”
