It's no secret that mogul Donald Trump is extremely opinionated. The famed businessman is regularly featured on media sharing his perspective and views on a litany of issues. This morning was no exception when Trump appeared on "Fox & Friends" to unleash his thoughts on last night's Oscar Awards. Aside from lambasting the overall show as "very average," he took particular aim at "Django Unchained" and Daniel Day-Lewis' depiction of Abraham Lincoln.

From the overall organization of the show to the set, which he called Tacky, Trump was less than enthusiastic.

"I thought they were very average. I was not impressed," Trump said, later dubbing the event "okay at best." "I thought some of the choices weren't very good."

Watch Trump comment on the Oscars, below:

As for "Django Unchained," the story about a freed slave seeking revenge, he had few favorable words, calling the film, "probably one of the most racist movies I've ever seen and a disgrace."

And while millions of Americans loved the movie "Lincoln," Trump found the film's starring actor less-than-persuasive in fulfilling his role. In fact, he said that Day-Lewis simply wasn't good.

"First of all, he's not from this country. He's had an accent that I can detect...I don't think Lincoln had an English accent to the best of my knowledge," he quipped. "And I said, that, you know, Lincoln never sounded like that...I just don't think that Lincoln behaved like that."

He concluded, "I did not think he was good in 'Lincoln' at all."
