The US President Donald Trump has started a Twitter war with singer John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen. While Chrissy has been quite vocal about her views on Trump and the way the government works, this time it was the president himself who raked up some bad blood. 

Trump took to Twitter to call Chrissy, ‘John Legend's "filthy-mouthed wife"' over her rant on criminal justice reform. His tweet was in reference to MSNBC’s coverage of criminal justice reform.

Trump tweeted, "When all of the people pushing so hard for Criminal Justice Reform were unable to come even close to getting it done, they came to me as a group and asked for my help. I got it done with a group of Senators & others who would have never gone for it. [Barack] Obama couldn't even come close. A man named Van Jones, and many others, were profusely grateful (at that time!).”

He continued, “I signed it into law, no one else did & Republicans deserve much credit. But now that it is passed, people that had virtually nothing to do with it are taking the praise. Guys like boring musician John Legend and his filthy-mouthed wife, are talking about how great it is - but I didn't see them around when we needed help getting it passed."

Chrissy called out the president for mentioning her without so much taking her name. She wrote, "Lol what a p***y a** b***. tagged everyone but me. an honor, mister president.”

She then also posted a photo of herself and wrote, "Luna, remember the night before your first day of school? When mommy was making your sign and the p***y a** b**** president had his 9th meltdown of the day."

John Legend responded too and wrote, “Imagine being president of a whole country and spending your Sunday night hate-watching MSNBC hoping somebody--ANYBODY--will praise you.  Melania, please praise this man.  He needs you.”
