As he has many times before, Donald Trump kicked off his day with a rant on social media. In his latest Twitter tirade, the president covered the possibility of firing Robert Mueller, as well as a potential military attack on Syria.

Trump on Twitter

The issue between Donald Trump and Russia has been building up for sometime, especially as the investigation into the Kremlin's hacking of the 2016 election picks up steam.

In recent months, special counsel Robert Mueller has put pressure on the president by indicting several of his past and present associates in relation to whether or not Russia worked in cahoots with the Trump campaign. Despite the mounting evidence, Trump has continued to deny any wrongdoing, claiming no "collusion" with Russia, while even recently tweeting out a threat that the U.S. could soon take military action against the Russian-backed Syria.

In a pair of tweets on April 12, Donald Trump gave his thoughts on whether or not he would fire Robert Mueller as special counsel.

"If I wanted to fire Robert Mueller in December, as reported by the Failing New York Times, I would have fired him," Trump tweeted, before adding, "Just more Fake News from a biased newspaper!"

Not stopping there, Donald Trump then elaborated on the current situation in Syria, giving new details following his aforementioned military threat.

"Never said when an attack on Syria would take place," Trump tweeted. "Could be very soon or not so soon at all! In any event, the United States, under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region of ISIS," Trump went on to add, before concluding, "Where is our 'Thank you America?'"

Twitter backlash

Following Donald Trump's tweets, those who oppose the administration took time to hit back.

"I wish he'd fire you. You don't work for him. What even are you?" one tweet asked.

"Just like you would stop watching propaganda machine Fox News?

NYT doing better than ever, while Sean Hannity losing viewers to Maddow," a Twitter user wrote. "You can't fire Mueller. You can ask Rosenstein to fire Mueller which obviously he won't. You can fire Rosenstein and then ask the solicitor general Noel Francisco to fire Mueller. Chances are he won’t either," a tweet stated.

"Same BS you say over and over again right before you get rid of someone," a social media user wrote. "Oh, please. You can't fire anyone, especially not face-to-face. You let others do the firing, and no one with brains will fire Mueller," a follow-up tweet read.
