With Donald Trump in the middle of his first foreign trip as commander in chief, his administration is doing their best to fan the flames of controversy back in Washington. After Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway used a recent poll from Fox News to promote Trump's agenda, she quickly faced backlash on social media.

Conway on Twitter

As Donald Trump picked up steam during the 2016 presidential election, he was forced to make a major move after he locked up the GOP nomination at the Republican National Convention last summer. Paul Manafort, who was serving as campaign manager at the time, had been exposed for having financial dealings with Russia.

As the scandal allegedly linking Trump to the Kremlin was heating up, Manafort resigned in an attempt to throw water on the fire. In his place, the former host of "The Apprentice" hired veteran Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway to lead the campaign. While Conway made a name for herself by getting into heated confrontations on cable news, she was able help steer the campaign in the right direction, pulling off the upset win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November. However, since Trump's inauguration, Conway has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, most notably the criticism she received for her use of the term "alternative facts," and citing the nonexistent "Bowling Green Massacre" to defend the president's "Muslim ban." As seen during a May 25 Twitter post, Conway posted the results of a recent Fox News poll, but revealed Americans concern about Russia in the process.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday afternoon, Kellyanne Conway tweeted out the findings of a Fox News poll, which inadvertently backfired on the White House.

"#poll: Again, the difference between what Americans say is important to them versus what they are told is important to them. 'I'm With Them,'" Conway tweeted. Unbeknownst to Conway, the Fox News poll also revealed that the majority of the American people were concerned over what impact Russia played in the election, an issue that has caused problems for Donald Trump his team for nearly two years.

Twitter reacts

In response to Kellyanne Conway's tweet, social media users were quick to troll the White House and point out her blunder. "Kellyanne- Thanks for sharing the fact that 61% of Americans are concerned about Russia's meddling in our election. Pretty high percentage," podcaster David Nuzzy Nussbaum tweeted.

"Try again.

This word salad is barely edible," another Twitter user wrote. "A Fox News poll is basically them calling you and your five friends and asking what they think, KELLYANNE," comedian Kristina Wong tweeted out.

"Counterpoint: The fact we live in a time where 'Russian Meddling' is a thing that more than 61% would even identify as a concern is amazing," director Robert Maguire added. The backlash continued as it was evident that many Americans were not going to let Kellyanne Conway slide over her questionable Twitter post.
