President-elect Donald Trump on Monday took to Twitter to respond to Meryl Streep's scathing attack on him during her acceptance speech at the Global Golden Awards, where she had said she was heartbroken by Trump's imitation of a disabled reporter during his campaign.

Here's what he tweeted: 

Streep had said "It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter."

The three-time Oscar winner was referring to a 2015 incident at a South Carolina rally when Trump flailed his arms and slurred in his speech in an apparent mocking of New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who has a physical disability. 

While Streep did not name Trump directly, she used almost the entire speech to criticize his behavior and policies, while calling for Hollywood to stand strong against any attacks and to support a free press through organizations such as the Committee to Protect Journalists.
