Over the last 24 hours, the biggest story to dominate the news cycle has been the Washington Post report that revealed that Donald Trump shared Classified Information with Russia. After tweeting out his defense, the president received massive backlash across social media.

Since the early days of the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump has been hit with allegations that he's been in cahoots with Russia. The former host of "The Apprentice" would leave Russian President Vladimir Putin out of his routine criticism, while making sure to rip nearly every other world leader in the process.

Trump also made sure to keep his tax returns private, resulting in critics accusing him of hiding a possible link between himself and the Kremlin in his financial history. In addition, several of Trump's advisers and associates, both past and present, have been caught communicating with Russia, including former National Security Advisers Michael Flynn who was forced to resign from that position once the news was made public. On Monday, another curve ball was thrown into the equation when the Washington Post reported that Trump shared "highly classified" documents with Segey Kislyak and Sergey Lavrov, two top Russian representatives, during a meeting in the Oval Office last week. After initially having the White House deny the reports, Trump attempted Twitter to clarify on May 16.

Taking to Twitter to explain his actions on Tuesday morning was Donald Trump.

"As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety," Trump tweeted out. In a follow-up message, Trump also added, "Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism."

Twitter reacts

Responding to Donald Trump's early morning tweets, social media users weren't willing to accept the president's accuse.

"You're going to kill us," songwriter Holly O'Reilly wrote, before adding, "Hell, I'd take Mitt Romney at this point," while attaching a George W. Bush meme for good measure.

"Trump criticized Obama over telegraphing strategy. Here he is spilling secrets to Russians like they gave him truth serum," filmmaker Adam Best wrote on his Twitter account, while also noting, "It's no different than bragging to Billy Bush on the bus.

Except this di*k-measuring contest jeopardizes national security."

"Just so we're all on the same page: an allied informant is likely being tortured to death as we speak, thanks ONLY to Trump's big mouth," writer Jules Suzdaltsev tweeted out about Donald Trump. "When Trump starts feeling pressure, he tweets more frequently...and after yesterday's disaster, today should be an epic tweet storm," Rob Szczerba added.

The negative responses continued as it became clear that the commander in chief was feeling the heat from the American people.
