The 'Hateful Eight' actor takes on the Republican presidential candidate's claim he has never golfed with him.

Samuel L. Jackson learned on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday that he's in a feud with Donald Trump after suggesting that the Republican presidential hopeful cheats at golf.

"You're in a feud with Donald Trump," Meyers told the Hateful Eight star. "Do you know this?"

"No, I don't," replied an amused Jackson. But he was aware that Trump had tweeted that he doesn't know Jackson and wasn't aware of ever playing golf with him.

Meyers asked Jackson if he had in fact met Trump."Yeah, I've met him a lot!" Jackson said.

"You've played golf with him?" asked Meyers.

"I played golf with him," Jackson told Meyers. "I actually played golf with him with Anthony Anderson one day. And we clearly saw him hook a ball into a lake at Trump National in Jersey. And his Caddy told him he found it."

Jackson revealed that there's another witness he could call to prove that Trump is indeed an acquaintance.

The actor explained that one day he gets a call from "The Don" as Trump apparently referred to himself on the phone. He asked Jackson if he was free to play golf. "I'm not gonna play, but I have a friend that wants to play," Trump told Jackson.

"And when I got there, it was President Clinton," Jackson said. "Who can also verify that Donald Trump knows me."

"If we can prove that Donald Trump knows you, this might be the thing that finally brings down his campaign," Meyers joked.

Jackson flashed a thumps up, saying, "Let's get on that."
