(WAFF) -

A tweet from Representative Ed Henry is gaining mixed reaction.

Rep. Henry, a Republican who represents Cullman, Marshall and Morgan counties, joined millions of Americans watching the first presidential debate on Monday night.

He live-tweeted his support for Donald Trump throughout the event and highlighted a number of issues at the debate.
 

However, his last tweet of the night is making headlines. 
 

We reached out to Rep. Henry this afternoon for comment. Rep. Henry was unapologetic, saying quote, “Is it not true?”.

 Rep. Henry adds he has no plans of taking down the tweet.
