As millions of Americans celebrated Independence Day on the 4Th Of July, it didn't stop a certain member of the First Family from lashing out. While the president was relatively tame on social media, his son Donald Trump Jr. didn't follow the same path.

Trump on Twitter

Over the last two years, Donald Trump has changed the direction of American politics. From his questionable policy proposals, to his controversial rhetoric and much-debated Twitter attacks, the former host of "The Apprentice" can't seem to stay out of the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Despite the negative reception from his critics and the majority of the mainstream media, Trump was able to weather the storm and pull off one of the most shocking political upsets in recent history with his election over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November. With Trump's rise during that time, his children and other family members have also found themselves in the spotlight. Son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump are now working in the administration, while First Lady Melania Trump has been in and out of the spotlight. However, sons Eric and Donald Trump Jr. have stayed out of official White House business, but it hasn't stopped them from offering their thoughts, which was clear during a series of July 4 tweets.

Taking to his Twitter account July 4 was Donald Trump Jr, as the son of the president decided to take a shot at liberal Americans, before shifting to an attack on the media.

"Out of curiosity, what exactly are Big Govt, oppressive taxation, anti 2A left wing socialists celebrating today?" the younger Trump rhetorically asked.

In a pair of follow-up tweets, Donald Trump Jr.

then decided to hit back at the mainstream media, targeting "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd in response to one of his recent social media posts. "I would say the saddest evidence of bias was from you not asking Bernie about the FBI bank fraud investigation," Donald Jr. wrote, before adding, "Ponder that!!! #fakenews."

Twitter reacts

In response to Donald Trump Jr's tweet, liberal Americans decided to give the president's son an answer to his question. "Hope for clean water, climate control, voting rights, workers rights, reproductive rights and kindness not to send tweets like yours," Ben Ashenden tweeted back.

"That, despite your father's best efforts, we still live in a republic with checks and balances," David Hogg tweeted. "Ideals like representative democracy for all, the idea of the US as a melting pot of different cultures, and freedom from mad kings," Tom Coates fired back on Twitter.

"I'm celebrating the people who founded the US Army, where I proudly served my country for 8 glorious years.

I'm guessing you are golfing?" another tweet read. "Oppressive *. Your phone literally has spellcheck," another social media user wrote while pointing out a spelling error in the tweet. As the backlash continued, it appeared that Donald Jr. got a bit more than he had bargained for.
