James Gunn, the director of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, has called out the President of the United States, Donald Trump, for signing crime victims' photos.

Gunn took to Twitter to voice his displeasure of the President's actions, claiming that he "wakes up every morning hoping more kids are murdered by immigrants so it will help him in the polls."



Trump was meeting with the "Angel Families," which is a group of people who are attempting to raise awareness of those who are being killed by illegal immigrants in the United States.

Trump reportedly signed the photos at the request of the families, yet Gunn saw it as a blatant attempt on the President's behalf to get his numbers up in the polls.

"This tone deaf oaf actually autographed photographs of murdered children," wrote the Marvel director/producer.

He then posted a reply to his tweet in which he elaborated on his previous comment. "I don't know why I'm so surprised he autographed those photos. You KNOW Trump wakes up every morning hoping more kids are murdered by immigrants so it will help him in the polls."
