The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) on Tuesday mocked President Trump with a Valentine's Day card featuring Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"Trump's having a tough day," the DCCC said Tuesday in a tweet. "We thought a Valentine's Day card could cheer him up!"

The tweet included an image of a card, which featured a picture of Putin wearing red heart-shaped glasses. 

The image included a poem that read: "Roses are red. Violets are blue. We're sorry that Putin is the only one who loves you."

The tweet linked to a page encouraging people to wish the president a happy Valentine's Day.

"We can't let Trump off the hook just because it's Valentine's Day," the page said. "Sign our tongue-in-cheek card to remind him the resistance will never let up."

The tweet comes after the president's national security adviser, Michael Flynn, resigned Monday amid reports that he misled senior White House officials about the content of his conversations with the Russian ambassador.

Flynn's future in the White House had come under scrutiny since reports surfaced last week that he had talked about sanctions against Russia with the country's ambassador before Trump was sworn in.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday the president asked Flynn to resign because of eroding trust.

Spicer said Flynn had done nothing wrong in talking to counterparts around the world, including from Russia. 

"There is not a legal issue but a trust issue," Spicer said.

In a joint report released in January, U.S. intelligence agencies stated "with high confidence" that Russian-backed hackers acting on Putin's order interfered in the U.S. presidential election with the aim of helping Trump win.
