Republican presidential candidates took to Twitter on Tuesday to blast President Barack Obama during his final State of the Union address.

While Donald Trump was relatively silent on the social media platform, Dr. Ben Carson, Governor Mike Huckabee, Governor John Kasich and Dr. Rand Paul were very vocal.

The candidates, who are vying for Obama's job this election year, criticized the president on several fronts from speech length to foreign policies.

However, the president did receive support from Democratic candidates Hilary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley, who tweeted positive statements about his progress in the oval office.

Here's what the candidates had to say during Obama's State of the Union address:

Criticism over captive US sailers

Criticism over treatment of veterans

Criticism over war on terror

Criticism over foreign policies
