Donald Trump calls Meryl Streep ‘overrated’

US President-elect Donald Trump has hit back at Meryl Streep’s criticism of him as she received a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes.

He tweeted: “Meryl Streep, one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes.

“She is a Hillary flunky who lost big,” Mr Trump added of the three-time Oscar-winning actress.

She said: “When the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose.”

The hostility towards Mr Trump from the world of showbiz contrasts with the feting of his defeated rival in November’s presidential election, Hillary Clinton.

She received three standing ovations as she made a rare public appearance on Sunday in New York City at the Broadway musical The Color Purple.
