In the most talked about special election in recent history, Alabama voters made their decision as to who they wanted to represent their state in the United States Senate on Tuesday night. In response to the shocking news, Donald Trump gave his thoughts on Twitter, which didn't get the best response from his critics.

Trump on Moore

The candidacy of Roy Moore down in Alabama has dominated the national political headlines due to the allegations against him of sexual assault and harassment. Heading into Tuesday night's election, many wondered what the voters in Alabama would do, as the most recent round of polls showed a tight race between Moore and his Democratic challenger Doug Jones.

Just a few hours after the polls closed at 8 p.m. local time, Jones came out the winner in what many believe will cause a shock-wave through the Republican Party on a national level heading into the 2018 midterm elections. With 49.7 percent to 48.6 percent, Jones was projected the winner on Tuesday night, which predictably triggered the commander in chief. Commenting on the news was Donald Trump who tweeted out his thoughts during a December 12 post on social media.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday night, Donald Trump was not pleased with the results of the Alabama special election and Roy Moore's victory, but did try to be civil.

"Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory," Trump tweeted, before adding, "The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win." Not stopping there, Trump added, "The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time.

It never ends!"

Twitter responds

Not long after Donald Trump sent out his tweet, critics made sure to fire back at the commander in chief. "The fact that you try to bully anyone, even your allies, shows how toxic and unfit for office you really are," one tweet read.

"You endorsed a p*dophile and we will never forget that," another Twitter user added. "Yes, the same night you will be voted out of office, will be the night Alabamans go back to the polls to re-elect Doug Jones," yet another Twitter user wrote. "Did you lawyer write this?" a tweet wondered.

"If only you hadn't supported him, the country is rejecting your candidates left and right... now go eat cheese poofs, watch more cable and plan your next golf trip," another social media user noted. The backlash continued as the opposition to Donald Trump and Roy Moore was made clear.
