Trump's upbeat note left at the Holocaust Memorial draws criticism when compared to Obama's
President Donald Trump visited Israel's national Holocaust memorial, Yad Vashem, where he left a guest book entry like many of his predecessors.
The brief note read in all capital letters:
"IT IS A GREAT HONOR TO BE HERE WITH ALL OF MY FRIENDS — SO AMAZING & WILL NEVER FORGET!"
Now people are comparing his note to what former President Barack Obama wrote when he visited the memorial in July 2008:
"I am grateful to Yad Vashem and all of those responsible for this remarkable institution. 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 own capacity to rise up from tragedy and remake our world. Let our children come here, and know their history, so that they can add their voices to proclaim 'never again.' And may we remember those who perished, not only as victims, but also as individuals who hoped and loved and dreamed like us, and who have become symbols of the human spirit."
However, Trump's note, raking in at 19 words, is not the shortest left by a U.S. president in the memorial's visitor's book. Former President George Bush's three-worded note in January 2008 proves not all entries need to be lengthy:
"God bless Israel."
Still, many took the opportunity to poke fun at the Trump's vocabulary and spelling. See them in the gallery below:
