Joe Biden chose not to commemorate the anniversary of D-Day over the weekend instead choosing to tweet about other matters.
According to Town Hall:
June 6 marked the 77th anniversary of D-Day, but you wouldn’t know it if you followed any of the White House or President Biden’s social media accounts. The commander in chief completely neglected to mention the U.S.-led invasion of Normandy in World War II on Sunday, tweeting instead a video of him meeting with survivors of the Tulsa Race Massacre.
While he briefly mentioned D-Day twice during a Memorial Day speech at Arlington National Cemetery, he did not commemorate the anniversary at all on Sunday.
Vice President Kamala Harris, meanwhile, did mark the anniversary with a tweet that read: “On the 77th anniversary of #DDay, we honor the heroes who stormed the beaches of Normandy and liberated a continent. We will never forget their courage and sacrifice.”
Jill Biden Tweeted about it as well:
