Twitter in the hands of Donald Trump tends to build us a little bit nervous.
Theres no telling what our commander in chief is going to fire off in 140 characters.
However, he took a subtle route this Memorial Day with a series of tweets that actually seemed sincere. Amazingly, he didnt insert himself into the equation.
Have a look at what the president said below.
We surely cant fault these statements; America free because of the brave, and its important to honor those who induced the ultimate sacrifice.
But, this is Twitter, and there is certainly no shortage of people who are willing to reply to your statementsand point out your hypocrisy.
Some brought up Trumpspolicies that would hurt veterans.
Others werecurious why the presidenthasnt stimulated mention of the victims who lost their lives in Portland
or thefallen Navy Sealwho lost his life this weekend.
One user built sure Trumpdidnt forget his past actions.
Another pointed out his hypocrisy.
Overall, what began as a tribute to Americas bravest was transformed into a Twitter battle overpolicies. Unfortunately, the main message behindtodays holidaywas lost in a series of argumentative tweets, thoughyes, there weredefinitely valid concerns.
This Memorial Day comes in the wake of a very busy weekend for the Trump administration.
The chairwomen top adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner has been accused of allegedly attempting to establish a secret communications channel between Trumpstransition team and Moscow in an effort to discuss policy issues.
Meanwhile, Trump has delayed his decision on whether or not he will leave the Paris climate accord, which has caused quite a stir.
Times are definitely tense in DC, and disagreement abounds, but for today, lets only remember those brave citizens and try to forget Trumps drama.
