He also slammed current Presidential hopefuls by posting, "I am the BEST builder, just look at what I've built. Hillary can't build. Republican candidates can't build. They don't have a clue!"

Trump's scathing tweets were met with mixed responses.

Many brought up his poor timing. One user tweeted, "did you just politicize a train derailment this quickly?" While another said, "that's low (even for you) to try to leverage a tragedy for your own 'political' gain."

Some followers supported him, by tweeting, "You have my official endorsement," and "That's WHY U should run for president sir!"

According to the latest reports, 7 people are confirmed dead and over 200 injured as a result of the train derailment.
