After Donald Trump was skewered by President Obama and Saturday Night Live head writer Seth Meyers at the White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday night, the real-estate mogul and host of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice is now on the offensive, first calling Meyers a “stutterer,” and now firing back at late night talk-show host David Letterman for saying Trump’s prolonged attacks on Obama have begun to “smack of racism.” In a letter to the host of CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman, Trump wrote, "I was disappointed to hear the statements you made about me last night on your show that I was a 'racist.’ In actuality, nothing could be further from the truth and there is nobody who is less of a racist than Donald Trump.” The Donald added, “Based upon your statements, and despite the fact that we have always done so well together, especially in your ratings, I am canceling my May 18th appearance on your show. Additionally, please inform your staff that I will likewise not do the 'Top Ten' list that they had been trying to set up.”
