Over the weekend, #Donald Trump caused even more negative headlines [VIDEO] to appear which didn't go over well with the commander in chief. After yet another spat with a member of his own Republican Party, and a controversial move by the vice president, legendary horror author #Stephen King decided to sound off on social media.

King on Trump

Ever since Donald Trump's historic and shocking upset election win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, he's only increased his controversial rhetoric that many believe is reckless and offensive. In addition to his tone, Trump's actions and policy proposals have rubbed many the wrong way.

Over the last week, the former host of "The Apprentice" came under fire for his slow response to the Hurricane in Puerto Rico, which included a dig at the island's debt owed to the United States, an insult to the Mayor of San Juan, and downplaying the body count after the storm. In addition, Trump's refusal to discus gun control after the worst mass shooting in American history occurred last Sunday night in Las Vegas resulted in further criticism of the president. After Twitter attacks against the mainstream media, late night TV hosts, and Republican Sen. Bob Corker over the weekend, Trump was ripped [VIDEO] by Stephen King during a tweet on October 8.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday afternoon was author Stephen King who didn't hold back his opinion on Donald Trump and the job he's done since being in the White House.

"Trump: Deluded, incompetent, self-absorbed, childish. The world's most feared leader and the most loathed American president in history," King wrote.

Stephen King's tweet comes just hours after Sen. Bob Corker replied to Donald Trump's criticism with a tweet of his own. The Tennessee Republican, who has announced he will be retiring at the end of his term, compared the billionaire real estate mogul to a child, and the White House to an "adult daycare center." As of press time, Trump has not responded to the follow-up from Corker, or from the Twitter attack by King.

King on Pence

In addition to Donald Trump's feud with Bob Corker, Vice President #Mike Pence also came under fire for walking out during the Indianapolis Colts vs San Francisco 49ers NFL game on Sunday due to the national anthem protests.

Trump went on to confirm that he instructed Pence to leave if the protests occurred, prompting Stephen King to tweet out his thoughts. "Pence leaving the stadium was pre-planned. It was a fund-raising gimmick," King tweeted.

King's feud

This isn't the first time that Stephen King has spoken out against Donald Trump. The author of classic novels such as "IT," "Pet Sematary," and "Misery" has been one of the president's most vocal critics on social media, which led to Trump banning him from viewing his personal Twitter account earlier this summer. With Trump ranting and raving against Hollywood celebrities, his approval rating is sitting at just 35 percent.
