Donald Trump is firing back after Bill Clinton said he only knew how to appeal to “angry white men.”

When the former president ran into the editor of the Bedford-Pound Ridge Record Review in Katonah, New York recently, he said that the president-elect “didn’t know much.”

“One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him,” Clinton said.

Trump didn’t take the criticism sitting down.

“Bill Clinton stated that I called him after the election,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. “Wrong, he called me (with a very nice congratulations). He ‘doesn’t know much’ …”

During his chat with the editor of the Bedford-Pound Ridge Record Review, Clinton also blamed Hillary Clinton’s loss on FBI Director James Comey. (RELATED: Bill Clinton Blames Hillary Clinton’s Loss On James Comey)

“James Comey cost her the election,” Clinton said. “We were seven percentage points up” in national polls at the time.
