Can You Spot the Errors in Donald and Melania Trump’s Pearl Harbor Remembrance Tweets?

Posted on

It’s been declared “a date which will live in infamy” but President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump both made errors when referencing Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day in a pair of tweets on Thursday.

The president’s tweet misquoted then-President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s address to a Joint Congressional Session following the attack on Pearl Harbor.

“National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day — ‘A day that will live in infamy!’ December 7, 1941,” Trump tweeted.

In fact, Roosevelt famously called Dec. 7 “a date which will live in infamy.”

Meanwhile, the first lady got the month of the attack wrong in her tweet.

“Today we honor Pearl Harbor Heroes. 11/7/1941,” she erroneously wrote. “Thank you to all military for your courage and sacrifice!”

Melania’s tweet was deleted and republished with the correct date after several social media users pointed out the mistake, Newsweek reported.

Even then, Twitter users weren’t pleased.

“What happened to 11/7/1941? That was a bigly day! I miss the old tweet!” one commenter quipped.
