Memorial Day is a federal holiday to remember the people who died while serving in the United States armed forces.

But for Donald Trump, it’s a day for those dead people to recognize him. And since these people can’t speak, he spoke for them.

“Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today,” he wrote.

He concluded his tweet about a solemn day of remembrance with: “Nice!”

Twitter responded with snark.

Others made the point more seriously.

One Twitter user got right to the point.
