President Donald Trump has broken his silence on the cancellation of “Roseanne.”

In a tweet, Trump noted that Robert Iger, who is chief executive of ABC’s parent Walt Disney Co., called Valerie Jarrett to say the network wouldn’t tolerate Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet about the former Obama adviser.

Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for “the HORRIBLE statements” that have been said about him on ABC. Tweeted Trump: “Maybe I just didn’t get the call.”

The president reveled in the show’s success this spring, especially after Barr’s character came out as a supporter of his policies.
