With his poll numbers slipping following the lewd tape scandal, US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday lashed out at GOP lawmakers who chose to renounce their support for him. In a series of harsh tweets, Trump accused them of being "disloyal" and claimed they are "far more difficult" than his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

"Our very weak and ineffective leader, Paul Ryan, had a bad conference call where his members went wild at his disloyalty," Trump stated, referring to the House Speaker's announcement that he can no longer defend Trump in light of the recent developments.

In another tweet, Trump said he was happy that "the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to."

Trump also blasted Sen. John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee who recently stated he cannot vote for either Trump or Clinton. "The very foul-mouthed John McCain begged for my support during his primary (I gave, he won), then dropped me over locker room remarks," Trump tweeted.
