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.
Trump 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.

Of course Trump makes #MemorialDay about himself.

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
