A veterans advocacy group tore into President Trump‘s Memorial Day tweet that bragged about the economy during his administration.
This is the most inappropriate #MemorialDay comment that a @POTUS has ever made. Self-promotion on a day to remember the fallen, and wishing those remembering their deceased loved ones a “happy” holiday is appalling. #CadetBoneSpurs pic.twitter.com/kRse4dnwiu

“Cadet Bone Spurs” was a nickname given to coward Donald Trump over multiple Vietnam War draft deferments that was invented by Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), who is a veteran who lost both of her legs while she was serving in Iraq.
VoteVets replied to Trump’s morning tweet, where he said that dead service members “would be very happy” about how the nation is doing right now.
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!

Many other social media users criticized Trump for taking advantage of the holiday to boast about his supposed accomplishments.
VoteVets, which says that it supports almost 500,000 veterans and also military families, has repeatedly criticized Trump and his evil policies.
The president even blocked the veterans group via Twitter in 2017 — but a federal district court judge decided last week that Donald Trump can’t block anyone from viewing his Twitter because of their political views.
