    US President Donald Trump launched a twitter broadside at John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen on Monday for what he said was a failure to give him enough credit for supporting criminal justice reform.

    Chrissy Teigen, an American model, television personality and author, launched a Twitter outburst after being called out by US President Donald Trump on the heels of a Sunday night special on MSNBC about criminal justice, that featured her husband John Legend. 

    ​She followed up her post with another tweet, adding a snapshot of herself as she made a chalkboard sign celebrating the start of her daughter Luna's second year of preschool:

    ​Legend also took a shot at Trump, as he addressed a plea to the First Lady, Melania Trump:

    ​US President Donald Trump had gone on Twitter just before midnight Sunday to vent about not getting enough credit for the passage of criminal justice reform legislation, and took the opportunity to lash out at Teigen and her husband, John Legend.

    Trump’s ire had been sparked by a Sunday night special on MSNBC: a town hall about criminal justice that featured Legend.

    ​Both John Legend and his spouse Chrissy Teigen have been outspoken critics of the US President.

    Twitter users joined in the heated exchange:
