Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, the political tension in the United States has escalated. As both the left and right grow angry at their elected officials, Trump decided to give his thoughts.

Trump on Twitter

In the weeks since the inauguration of Donald Trump, backlash has increased against him and his administration. While demonstrations have taken place on an almost daily basis against Trump, it's also trickled down to Republicans at a state and local level. In recent days, protests have erupted at various local town hall events, mostly involving Republican lawmakers.

On Monday, Republican Rep. Jim Jordan clashed with angry constituents, leading to an uncomfortable moment at the town hall. Recent reports show that over 200 Republicans are canceling or shying away from planning town hall events due to the threat of opposition. As seen on his Twitter account on February 21, Donald Trump has his own theory about who is behind the disturbance.

"The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists," Donald Trump tweeted out on Tuesday afternoon, before adding, "Sad!" This isn't the first time that the commander in chief has been vocal in his opposition to protesters.

Despite claiming that he supports the First Amendment and the right to peacefully assemble, the former host of "The Apprentice" has lashed out against demonstrators, most notably those that took place during his inauguration in Washington, D.C. last month.

Moving forward

After just a month in office, Donald Trump has stuck to many his campaign promises which has only furthered the divide among the American people.

From his immigration proposals, to his "Muslim ban" executive order, the opposition to the billionaire real estate mogul appears to be growing by the day. Over the last week, Trump has faced his first major scandal since becoming president, which involved the resignation of retired Gen. Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor, as well as his increased war of words with the mainstream news media.
