Donald and Melania Trump both flub Pearl Harbor tweets




 

President Donald Trump appears to have slightly misquoted Franklin D. Roosevelt's famous remarks following the brutal attack on Pearl Harbor in a tweet commemorating the 76th anniversary of the solemn day.

"National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day - 'A day that will live in infamy!' December 7, 1941," Trump tweeted early Thursday.


In one of FDR's best-known speeches following the attack, the 32nd president spoke of "a date which will live in infamy."

Melania Trump also made a small error in her tweet commemorating the attack.

In the now-deleted tweet, the first lady wrote: "Today we honor Pearl Harbor Heroes. 11/7/1941 Thank you to all military for your courage and sacrifice!"

The date detailed in her tweet suggested the attack occurred on Nov. 7, 1941, not the correct date, which is Dec. 7, 1941.

After the tweet in question was removed, the first lady's account followed up with a corrected version.

The case may not be resolved in the courts before 2020, legal experts said, which could make it a defining issue in the race for the White House and Congress. Democrats immediately jumped on the Friday night ruling to warn that health care coverage for millions of Americans was at stake due to the Republican-led lawsuit that sought to void popular parts of Obamacare, including protections for pre-existing conditions and a ban on annual lifetime limits. Also at risk are provisions that affect the wider health insurance market, such as keeping adults on their parents' policies until age 26.
