In 2016, when he was running for president, Trump fired off this odd line of attack on President Barack Obama as he visited the nation:
Does President Obama ever discuss the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor while he's in Japan? Thousands of American lives lost. #MDW— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 28, 2016
Now, with Trump in Japan almost exactly three years later, the president’s Twitter critics are wondering if he brought the matter up to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe:
On Memorial Day weekend, 3 years ago, Trump criticized Obama for not discussing “the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor while he’s in Japan.” I wonder if a journalist might want to ask him whether he’s going to bring it up now that he’s in Japan, as president, on Memorial Day weekend? https://t.co/B4XKbJm6X8— Brian Klaas (@brianklaas) May 25, 2019
Did you ask them about Pearl Harbor like you told Obama to do in 2016? https://t.co/2qfynAKJoC— The Rude Pundit (@rudepundit) May 26, 2019
Obama never had to discuss Pearl Harbor because that score was rather famously settled. https://t.co/6Rzuf4igYJ— efg (@eande9for10) May 25, 2019
Remember when you said Obama should address the "sneak attack" on Pearl Harbor while in Japan? Have you done this? pic.twitter.com/PJqMK5p9ZW— REDACTED (@mrshellwinger) May 26, 2019
