Bryan Cranston on Tuesday mocked President TrumpDonald John TrumpFive takeaways from Cruz, O'Rourke's debate showdown Arpaio files libel suit against New York Times IMF's Christine Lagarde delays trip to Middle East MORE for taking credit for the safest year on record in commercial aviation, asking if he could please turn his attention toward natural disasters in the new year.

"Thank you @realDonaldTrump for preventing US commercial airlines from crashing in 2017. Your active participation monitoring the flight patterns and safety regulations was greatly appreciated," the former “Breaking Bad” star tweeted.

His comments come after Trump on Tuesday morning tweeted: “Since taking office I have been very strict on Commercial Aviation. Good news — it was just reported that there were Zero deaths in 2017, the best and safest year on record!”


Trump's comment came in response to a new study that showed 2017 was the safest year on record for commercial aviation. Airlines recorded zero deaths on commercial passenger jets worldwide, according to a report published by the Aviation Safety Network.

Overall, 44 people in total were killed in 10 fatal commercial passenger and cargo plane crashes. Those crashes involved small propeller planes and cargo aircraft. 

There has not been a fatal passenger airline crash in the U.S. since 2009, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. The last deadly commuter plane crash took place in Hawaii in 2013.

Social media users were quick to mock Trump for his tweet, questioning what he meant by saying he was "very strict" on commercial aviation and asking what he actually did to improve airline safety.

Cranston, who in the past pledged to move out of the country if Trump won the White House, said last October that he had a message for anyone who’s hoping that the commander in chief fails: “F--- you.”
