President Donald Trump recalled his political fights with House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler in a Tuesday post.

“Congressman Jerry Nadler fought me for years on a very large development I built on the West Side of Manhattan,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “He wanted a Rail Yard built underneath the development or even better, to stop the job. He didn’t get either & the development became VERY successful. Nevertheless, I got along very well with Jerry during the zoning and building process.”

The battle between Trump and Nadler took place in the 1980s over a development project on Manhattan’s West Side, according to the Washington Post‘s Josh Dawsey.

Trump acknowledged that his relationship with Nadler changed significantly when be became president, but signaled optimism that their relationship could be a positive one.

“Then I changed course (slightly), became President, and now I am dealing with Congressman Nadler again,” Trump wrote. “Some things never end, but hopefully it will all go well for everyone. Only time will tell!”

But Nadler has demonstrated he has little interest in working with the president.

In 2018, the Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway overheard Nadler promising to go “all-in” to investigate Trump and his connections with Russia after Democrats won a House majority in the midterm elections.
