President Trump: 'Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud'

President Trump on Monday tweeted a Memorial Day message.

“Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The White House also issued a statement, noting, “Memorial Day is an occasion for Americans to honor those who lost their lives in service to our country.”

“As we do so, it is also a moment to consider how we can make life better for all of America’s heroes in uniform, including our veterans,” the statement added.
