Ever since #Donald Trump was able to pull off the upset and become the new president-elect by defeating Hillary Clinton, all eyes shifted on how he would transition into the White House. While Trump's relationship with President #Obama has gone surprisingly well over the last month, the two hit a major bump in the road over the weekend.
Trump on Twitter
During one of his last interviews as President of the United States, President Obama spoke with his former advisor, and current host of "The Axe Files' podcast, David Axelrod. Obama was asked what he thought his chances would have been if he was allowed to run for a third term, and the president expressed his confidence, saying he thinks he could have beaten Donald Trump. Just hours after the interview was made public, Trump lashed out on #Twitter, stating "No way!" about Obama's chances. As seen on his offical Twitter account on December 27, Trump is not done venting on the subject.
President Obama campaigned hard (and personally) in the very important swing states, and lost.The voters wanted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 27, 2016
"President Obama campaigned hard (and personally) in the very important swing states, and lost," Donald Trump tweeted Thursday afternoon, before adding, "The voters wanted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!" In response, social media users were quick to criticize the former host of "The Apprentice." As they did during his first attack on Obama, Twitter users continued to question why Trump would be so obsessed with knocking the president.

@realDonaldTrump Don't you have better things to do right now? You're stuck in campaign mode.— Parker Molloy (@ParkerMolloy) December 27, 2016
"@realDonaldTrump Don't you have better things to do right now? You're stuck in campaign mode," Upworthy writer Parker Molloy responded. Others took a more humorous approach to their trolling of the president-elect. "Donald I have a new idea for the entertainment at your inauguration. You could be shot out of a cannon," Executive Director at NYC Media Lab, Justin Hendrix wrote.
Actor Tommy Campbell also fired back, asking, "How is you being a bitch on twitter making America great again?" Former child actor David Nussbaum also took a shot at Donald Trump, commenting, "My grandma used to say the same thing over and over and over again too. But she had Alzheimer's Disease."

Charles Johnson, guitarist for George Duke, took to his own Twitter account to express his thoughts on Trump's latest attack on Obama. "Forget the evacuation of Trump Tower; the Narcissist in Chief is still ranting about Obama," Johnson wrote.
As the negative responses continue, Donald Trump is still getting ready to be sworn in as president on January 20. However, the incoming commander in chief will also be dealing with as many as 100,000 protesters who are planning to voice their opposition to his agenda next month.
