Following the Amtrak train accident in Philadelphia last night, Donald Trump took to Twitter to criticize America's infrastructure and claim that he's the only solution.

In one tweet, he said, "The only one to fix the infrastructure of our country is me – roads, airports, bridges. I know how to build, pols only know how to talk!"

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.
