Despite his best efforts, Donald Trump can't seem to shake off the growing scandal involving Russia. As the pressure continues to mount on the White House, Trump decided to vent his frustrations on social media.

Trump on Twitter

From the day Donald Trump first announced his campaign for president, there was speculation over what impact his business history would have on the election. As the months moved on, Trump raised red flags with his controversial behavior and rhetoric. From not releasing his tax returns, to praising Vladimir Putin, to past and current advisers and associates being caught communicating with Russia, the former host of "The Apprentice" has been dealing with the Kremlin scandal hovering over his campaign and now administration for nearly two years.

Over the last month, various reports have only added fuel to the fire, including Trump sharing classified information with Russian officials, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, being under FBI scrutiny for possibly withholding information about the investigation into Russia. In an attempt to defend himself and dismiss the allegations, Trump decided to highlight the issue during a May 30 post on Twitter.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday morning, Donald Trump blasted the Democrats for allegedly making up "Fake News" about Russia.

"Russian officials must be laughing at the U.S. & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News," Trump tweeted out.

Responding to Donald Trump's tweet about Russia, the Democratic Party, and alleged "fake news," social media users didn't hold back their criticism. "If it's 'fake news' why did Sessions recuse himself from the investigation?" Tom Bonier asked.

"You would know.

You were just with them giving them American intel and insulting out former FBI agent," Tony Posnanski wrote, before adding, "BTW...this is a very Unamerican thing to tweet the day after Memorial Day." "The Russian officials are laughing at America as a result of how easy you are to manipulate," Khary Penebaker added.

"They're laughing at how easy it is to manipulate you. You're in their pocket. You're Putin's little puppet. Run along and do his bidding," writer Mike P Williams wrote, while adding in a follow-up tweet, " Also a bit weird how you keep bringing up Russia - is it a topic that's always on your mind, with your close ties, collusion, etc?." The backlash continued as it was made clear that the opposition to Donald Trump was not going to end at any point in the near future.
