On Sunday night, the Philadelphia Eagles pulled off the upset by defeating the New England Patriots for their first Super Bowl in franchise history. Not long after the end of the game, Donald Trump gave his thoughts.

Trump on Super Bowl

Heading into Super Bowl LII, the New England Patriots were the heavy favorites with MVP quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick leading the way for what could have been the franchise's sixth championship. On the other end of the field, the Philadelphia Eagles were led by quarterback Nick Foles, the team's backup who stepped into the role after starter Carson Wentz went down with a season-ending injury late in the season.

For President Donald Trump, he was holding a watch party at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he was cheering on the Patriots due to his friendship with Brady and team owner Robert Kraft. Following the Eagles big win, Trump gave his quick thoughts [VIDEO] during a February 4 tweet.

Taking to Twitter late Sunday night, Donald Trump posted a short message of congratulations to the Eagles. "Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles on a great Super Bowl victory!" Trump tweeted. Earlier in the day, Trump was ridiculed for holding a Super Bowl party due to his current feud with the National Football League.

Over the last five months, Trump has been at odds with the league and players who have decided to kneel during the playing of the national anthem as a form of protest against racism in the country.

Instant mockery

With Donald Trump being known as a fan of the New England Patriots critics of the president [VIDEO] wasted no time firing back. "As an Eagles Fan for 36 yrs we don’t want your congrats," one tweet read.

"Shut up B*tch no one wants to come to the White House either," a Twitter user wrote. "Thought you boycotted football, guess you lied again," a follow-up tweet stated. "Are sad don because you just couldn't appoint your friend the winner of the super bowl???" an additional tweet noted.

"You don’t sound like your normal self....are you sad your buddies Robert Kraft, BB and Tom Brady won’t be coming to the White House now?" a social media user wondered. "Every single person in Philly hates you," Zack Bornstein wrote. "Go to bed, you have to work tomorrow. No Wait.... you don't work," post read. The backlash and mockery continued as Trump's response to the Patriots' defeat became a source of humor across Twitter.
