Former President Donald Trump waited over 24 hours to issue a statement on the death of former Secretary of State Colin Powell -- who passed away Monday morning due to complications from COVID-19 -- and what the one-term president had to say is infuriating the many fans of the late military leader and diplomat.

In a statement posted to Twitter by spokesperson Liz Harrington, because Trump is banned from the platform, Trump wrote, "Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media. Hope that happens to me someday,"

Calling Powell a "classic RINO," the former president sneered, "He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!"

That, in turn," set off Trump's critics with respected election prognosticator Larry Sabato tweeting, "No decent human being will defend Trump's malevolent, spiteful, narcissistic statement on Gen. Powell. But those Republicans who keep silent today will speak volumes about how Trump has debased them and their once-great party. Candidates with no courage never deserve our votes."

CNN anchor Jim Sciutto refused to even link to the statement, writing, "Reading - but deliberately not sharing - Trump's statement on the passing of Colin Powell is another reminder there really is no bottom."
