Following the release of Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," Donald Trump gave his first public speech in Nashville, Tennessee. After making several controversial remarks, critics on social media wasted no time firing back at the commander in chief.

Trump in Nashville

While it's only one week into 2018, Donald Trump and his administration have been forced to push back against controversy and scandal. Just after the start of the new year, author Michael Wolff released his new book that exposed potentially damaging information from behind the scenes at the White House.

In addition, on Sunday night Oprah Winfrey made headlines after giving a speech at the Golden Globes that received such praise, with many now pushing for her to run for president in 2020. In the aftermath of his rough start to the year, Trump addressed farmers at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual convention, as reported by NBC News on January 8.

On Monday afternoon, Donald Trump made his way to Nashville, Tennessee and spoke at the annual convention for the American Farm Bureau Federation.

After reading off a list and thanking his supporters, Trump proceeded to rip of his list and toss the papers in to the air. "OK, I've done my job now," Trump said. "Did I do a good job?" he asked, before adding, "There's always trouble when you do that. If you leave out one person, for the rest of your life they never speak to you again."

Moving forward, the commander in chief was quick to highlight some of his favorite aspects of his administration, most notably his Tax Bill.

"Republicans came together and delivered historic relief for our farmers and our middle class," Trump claimed. "Oh are you happy you voted for me. You are so lucky I gave you that privilege," Trump told those in attendance. "The other choice wasn't gonna work out well for the farmers. Or the miners or anyone else," he noted.

Trump later went on to speak about the importance of standing during the national anthem while praising the presidency of Andrew Jackson.

Quick reaction

Following Donald Trump's speech, those who oppose the administration made sure to lash out. "Did someone pick it up from the floor?? I hope they put it back together and screenshot it!!" one tweet read.

"Or was it a copy of the constitution?" a Twitter user rhetorically asked. "He’s utterly fed up with the job, wants out, and/or expects to be gone soon," yet another tweet stated.

"Oh goody.. another unhinged Trump rant," an additional tweet read.

"Worst President Ever @realDonaldTrump he's such a mess, and on so many levels," a social media user wrote. The backlash continued to pour in as the opposition to the president showed no signs of slowing down.
