President Donald Trump on Monday sent out a message commemorating Memorial Day by saying that dead American soldiers would loved his presidency.


"Happy Memorial Day!" the president wrote on Twitter. "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!"

Trump's decision to make Memorial Day a tribute to himself, rather than simply focusing on men and women who sacrificed their lives for their country, drew a sharp backlash from many Twitter users -- check out some of the responses below.
