With winds reaching up to 130 mph, Hurricane Harvey rocked the Lone Star State by forcing thousands to evacuate the city of Houston, with dozens of deaths being reported in its aftermath. In response, Donald Trump was criticized, first for his reaction on social media and then during his first trip to the state.

You're incompetent," a Twitter user added. "Remember that time you decided to pull out of the Paris Accord because climate change was fake news? #ClimateChangeIsReal," an additional tweet noted.

"It's not a headliner at a concert my guy," another social media user pointed out. "That's another really weird tweet. It's like a final farewell. And 'state brave people'? So weird," a tweet noted. As the country waits to see how the hurricane impacts Florida, social media wasn't going to back-down against Donald Trump.
