Trump Celebrates Memorial Day By Tweeting That Dead And Fallen Soldiers Would’ve Loved His Presidency
Donald Trump marked Memorial Day in a tweet, on Monday morning, claiming that our country’s fallen heroes “would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today.”
“Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more.” Trump tweeted.
Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!

Memorial Day is held annually to honor service members who died for the U.S.
Trump is scheduled to participate in a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery later Monday morning.
The President has often used Twitter to brag about the state of the economy under his administration. The black and Hispanic unemployment rates both reached record lows last month, according to statistics from the Department of Labor.
Twitter was not impressed:
Perhaps your most vulgar narcissism ever.

Those who died for our great country would be mortified to see an animal like you trying to take away all of our liberties and freedoms. #Resist

Donald Trump, a five time draft dodger, has found a way to make Memorial Day about himself.

What chaps my ass about this is that once again he co-opts somebody else’s sacrifice for his own glory.
This guy has never actually ever done ANYTHING himself. He’s the ultimate parasite. The Tapeworm President. https://t.co/2ZwvdSuUZU

This is STOLEN VALOR On Display: Trump uses the sacrifice of men and women in US military to talk his political agenda. Think for a moment if Obama ever did this?! Will we see Republicans speak out?! https://t.co/2BeTpREUEQ
