Guns N’ Roses lead vocalist Axl Rose’s vulgar comment on US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin has triggered a Twitter war online between the duo. With the American musician not being a regular on social media, his sudden flare-up against the politician left many stunned.

“It’s official! Whatever anyone may have previously thought of Steve Mnuchin he’s officially an a*****,” Rose tweeted.

While it is not clear what provoked Rose, his post quickly went viral on social media, prompting a response from Mnuchin, who tweeted, “What have you done for the country lately?”.

Amid the exchange, AP journalist Philip Crowther pointed out that Mnuchin initially added a Liberian flag to the end of his question. Mnuchin then deleted that response, and put up the same reply with an American flag.
