President Donald Trump challenged Disney CEO Bob Iger again on Twitter Thursday, suggesting he deserved a personal apology for Brian Ross’s false report about the Russia investigation.

“Iger, where is my call of apology? You and ABC have offended millions of people, and they demand a response,” Trump wrote. “How is Brian Ross doing? He tanked the market with an ABC lie, yet no apology. Double Standard!”

On Wednesday, Trump also demanded an apology from Iger.

“Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that ‘ABC does not tolerate comments like those’ made by Roseanne Barr,” he wrote on Twitter. “Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?”

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also raised the double standard in the daily press briefing on Thursday, suggesting Iger should apologize for other offensive comments made by his employees.

She asked:

Where was Bob Iger’s apology to the White House staff for Jemele Hill calling the president and anyone associated with him a white supremacist, to Christians around the world for Joy Behar calling Christianity a mental illness? Where was the apology for Kathy Griffin going on a profane rant against the president on The View after a photo showed her holding President Trump’s decapitated head? And where was the apology from Bob Iger for ESPN hiring Keith Olbermann after his numerous expletive-laced tweets attacking the president as a Nazi and even expanding Olbermann’s role after that attack against the president’s family?
