    Hollywood actress Meryl Streep's accusations during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes award ceremony last night have no basis in reality, the US president-elect Donald Trump said in a series of tweets on Monday morning.

    NEW YORK (Sputnik) — On Sunday, during annual Golden Globe awards Meryl Streep criticized the president-elect Trump — without mentioning Trump by name — as a bully who has shown "instinct to humiliate."

    She particularly referred to the remark Trump made in 2015, when he seemingly mocked the New York Times reporter with a disability.

    "Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me, but attacked [me] last night at the Golden Globes," Trump said via Twitter. "She is a Hillary flunky who lost big."

    ​Trump added that he never mocked the disabled reporter, but criticized the reporter for altering the facts of a decades-old story to make Trump appear in a negative light.

    In a phone interview, Trump told the New York Times that he was "not surprised" to have been attacked by "liberal movie people" and urged others to quickly dismiss Streep's accusations.
