Donald Trump under fire for 'grade schooler'-like signature in Holocaust memorial book

President Donald Trump visited Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust memorial, to pay a solemn tribute to the 6 million victims and participate in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Hall of Remembrance Monday.

And while there, Trump left a note, like many former U.S. presidents before him, including George W. Bush and Barack Obama -- a note that Twitter has since been picking apart upon its debut.

"It is a great honor to be here with all of my friends — so amazing and will never forget!" Trump signed in the museum's book of remembrance.

The note has been facing widespread criticism on Twitter from many who found it more frivolous than moving.

"How about the content or lack thereof?" one user tweeted in response, while another wrote: "Why does this feel like I'm reading a grade schooler? YAY! I'M HERE WITH ALL MY FRIENDS! IT'S SO COOL! LOVE IT!"

Many took the opportunity to attack the president's vocabulary and spelling. See them in the gallery below:

@RaoulWootliff @PhilipRucker @realDonaldTrump @PresidentRuvi I can't believe he knows how to spell Israel.
@RaoulWootliff @PhilipRucker @realDonaldTrump @PresidentRuvi He spelled Israel right. With that sentence, he became president.
This is not the sort of note a normal fucking adult human writes at Yad Vashem https://t.co/LNWqf172p5 https://t.co/khgNHyfGlZ

Others couldn't help but compare a slightly different note from Barack Obama during his trip to Yad Vashem as president.

When then-candidate and Sen. Barack Obama visited the museum in 2008, he shared a more somber message.

"I am grateful to Yad Vashem and all of those responsible for this remarkable institution," he wrote in part. "At a time of great peril and promise, war and strife, we are blessed to have such a powerful reminder of man's potential for great evil, but also our capacity to rise up from tragedy and remake our world."

President George W. Bush also wrote in the Book of Remembrance a few months prior, writing a simple message.

"God bless Israel."
