It was only a matter of time before President Donald Trump hit out at Madonna's controversial Women's March speech.

Speaking to Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity, Trump dismissed her as "disgusting" following her remarks that she had "thought about blowing up the White House".

"Honestly, she's disgusting," he said. "I think she hurt herself very badly. I think she hurt the whole cause. I thought her and a couple of others. But I thought she was in particular, I thought what she said was disgraceful to our country."

Madonna had told the crowds at the Women's March in Washington last weekend: "I'm angry, Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know that this won't change anything.

"We cannot fall into despair. As the poet W. H. Auden once wrote on the eve of World War Two, 'We must love one another or die.' I choose love. Are you with me?"

She later claimed her comments had been taken "wildly out of context", and defended her speech in a statement on Instagram.

It read: "I am not a violent person. I do not promote violence, and it's important people hear and understand my speech in its entirety, rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context.

Trump also criticised SNL's Katie Rich who was suspended from the NBC show for her "offensive" and "inappropriate" tweet about his ten-year-old son Barron.

"Saturday Night Live, a person from Saturday Night Live was terrible," he added. "I don't mind some humour, but it's terrible. For them to attack, for NBC to attack my ten-year-old son. It's a disgrace. He's a great boy. And it's not an easy thing for him. Believe me."
