Donald Trump’s Oscars 2017 reaction is here, and it’s what you would expect. While many were waiting for a tweet on Donald Trump’s Twitter account regarding the Oscars blunder, the president chose to respond to the fiasco in two interviews instead.

According to Trump, who spoke with conservative news website Breitbart shortly after the event, politics are to blame for the mistake at the end of the Oscars 2017 ceremony. During the ceremony, many jokes were aimed at the president, and even though he chose not to tweet, Donald Trump did have something to say about those jokes and the racism accusations against him.

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC), the accounting firm responsible for counting the Oscars’ ballots and the safekeeping of the envelopes, later issued an apology for the error.
