The head of the oldest environmental group in the U.S. has nothing nice to say about President-elect Donald Trump.

Sierra Club president Aaron Mair called Trump a “pure racist bigot” with “no class” on Twitter. Mair’s tweet, interestingly enough, was in response to a Tump tweet from 2014.

This isn’t the first time Mair has lashed out against Trump.

After Cuban dictator Fidel Castro died in November, Mair tweeted that Castro had “more honor” than Trump. Mair said Castro “fought for his country,” linking to an article on Trump’s response to Castro’s death

Trump pulled no punches in calling Castro a “brutal dictator” who brought pain and suffering to thousands of Cubans.

Castro is responsible for the deaths of nearly 10,000 people during his brutal communist takeover. Another 77,000 Cubans were estimated to have died trying to escape Cuba.

Mair quickly deleted the pro-Castro tweet, but not before The Daily Caller News Foundation captured a screenshot.
