Just hours after tweeting out about being a "stable genius," Donald Trump made his way to Camp David for a retreat with several top members of Congress. Following a Q&A with reporters, critics were quick to fire back [VIDEO]on Twitter.

Trump at Camp David

After the release of the hot new book by author Michael Wolff titled "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," Donald Trump spent time defending himself on social media. The president has gone on to call Wolff a "liar" and a "loser," while also bashing his former friend Steve Bannon for dishing the dirt on the administration, giving the head of Breitbart News the nickname of "Sloppy Steve." In the days since the first excerpts were released, speculation has grown in regards to Trump's mental fitness due to Wolff's claims that many advisers in the White House have questioned the president's ability to lead the country.

Trump went off on a multi-tweet rant on Saturday morning where he listed his accomplishments [VIDEO] before describing himself as a "genius" and very "smart." Just hours later and Trump found himself taking questions from reporters at Camp David after meeting with members of Congress, as reported by CBS News on January 6.

With top Republican congressional members behind him, Donald Trump was asked why he felt the need to tweet about his mental state. "I went to the best colleges for college. I went to, I had a situation where I was a very excellent student." Trump said.

"I made billions and billions of dollars. Became one of the top business people. Went to television and for 10 years was a tremendous success, as you probably have heard. Ran for president one time and won," Donald Trump added. "Then I hear this guy (Michael Wolff) who doesn't know me at all. By the way, he said he interviewed me for three hours at the White House. It didn't exist," Trump said, before adding, "It's in his imagination." Not stopping there, Trump continued to rip into Wolff, calling the book a "work of fiction" before blaming libel laws for its content. "The libel laws are very weak in this country. If they were strong...you wouldn't have things like that happen where you can say whatever comes to your head," he said.

"Sloppy Steve brought him into the White House which is why Sloppy Steve is now looking for a job," Trump concluded.

Rapid reaction

After Donald Trump made his remarks at Camp David, critics were fast to hit back on Twitter. "I think we’ve got to the point when Trump might think that even Trump is not real anymore and it’s all fake news," one tweet read.

"It’s difficult to impossible to accept anything this man says as being true. His track record is horrible. From real estate swindles, tax evasion and really bad TV to increasing the depth of the DC swamp. Fit to be the @POTUS? Not looking real good," another tweet added. "Genius... and yet he doesn't realize that the more he pushes back, the more it seems like he's actually quite the opposite and is validating what Wolff wrote in his book," a follow-up tweet stated.

"This is lunacy. He has finally broken! Went to "all the best colleges, for college?" a Twitter user added. "Wait, is Donald saying that people shouldn’t be able to just insult someone based on falsities? Does he not read his own twitter feed?" an additional tweet pointed out.
