President Donald Trump has paid tribute to America’s fallen soldiers on Memorial Day with a self-congratulating tweet, celebrating the direction of the country under his administration.

Axar.az informs citing AP.

“Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today,” Trump tweeted Monday. “Nice!”

The president praised the current unemployment rate for African Americans and Hispanics, as well as the “best economy in decades” to tout his achievements.
Memorial Day is held annually to honor service members who died in the line of duty.

Trump had tweeted a video message to mark the occasion earlier Monday.

″I know that everybody is remembering the fallen soldiers who have paid the ultimate price for our country, and it’s a country that we all love,” he said in the video. “As Americans, we come together to remember our great heroes on this Memorial Day.”
Twitter users were quick to slam the US president for his seemingly self-congratulatory comments on Memorial Day.

Some mocked Trump’s many deferments to dodge military service during the Vietnam War, including his claim of “bone spurs.”
