Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to spar with fellow real estate titan Douglas Durst. The Donald claimed that Durst’s treatment of his estranged brother, Robert, is what made Robert, who served three years in prison for decapitating a Texas neighbor, “angry.”

“Personally, I think Douglas Durst’s brother got screwed by Douglas — no wonder he’s angry,” Trump tweeted on Friday, according to the New York Post.

In August, Robert was arrested for violating the terms of the restraining order Durst has against him, the Post reported.

Trump clarified his remarks to the Post on Monday, saying that “I’ve heard [Durst’s] brother, who might be some kind of a serial killer and went off and did bad things, was screwed along the line.”

Durst declined to comment to the newspaper about the incident. [NYP]Hiten Samtani
