Mr. Trump’s Memorial Day message, included this all caps rant that is most reminiscent of his angry mob that stormed the Capitol on January 6th 2021:
"HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY TO ALL, BUT ESPECIALLY TO THOSE WHO GAVE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE FOR THE COUNTRY THEY LOVE, BU8T EQUALLY DANGEROUS FIRE, STOPPING THE THREATS OF THE TERRORISTS, MISFITS AND LUNATIC THUGS WHO ARE WORKING FEVERISHLY FROM WITHIN TO OVERTURN AND DESTROY OUR ONCE GREAT COUNTRY, WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN IN GREATER PERIL THAN IT IS RIGHT NOW. WE MUST STOP THE COMMUNISTS, MARXISTS AND FASCIST “PIGS“ AT EVERY TURN, AND MAKE AMEERICA GREAT AGAIN.”
Contrast that with President’ Biden’s Memorial Day message on Twitter:
Both the current and the former president have released messages on social media to commemorate Memorial Day, each marked by clear differences—and not just the use of the caps lock key.
While Joe Biden chose to focus on those who had given their lives defending the U.S. and its allies, Trump opted to broaden those he was honoring to include those "STOPPING THE THREAT OF THE TERRORISTS, MISFITS AND LUNATIC THUGS," and make a forward-looking political statement.
It comes as the two appear as front-runners in their parties' respective fields for the nomination for the 2024 presidential election, having both now declared their candidacy.
