The president’s tweet on Monday also touted the economy, unemployment rates and rebuilding of the American military.

Naturally, Trump’s message – like all his tweets which are analyzed by the left for every nuance to be used against him – sparked a round of backlash. Critics attacked the president for daring to use his Memorial Day message as a platform for celebrating the accomplishments of his presidency instead of focusing on military service members who died in the line of duty.

Even got in on the hating.

But Trump’s supporters saw nothing wrong in his tweet, just happy to have a president who even cared about members of the military.
