WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 27: The grave of Marine Lt. Robert Kelly, son of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, is seen at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day, May 27, 2018 in Arlington, Virginia.

"The heroes who rest in these hallowed fields, in cemeteries, battlefields near and far, are drawn from the full tapestry of American life", Trump said.

President Trump used the day when America pauses to remember its war dead to tout his administration's domestic achievements, saying those who died would be "happy" at "how well" the country has done under his watch.

Calling Trump's tweet the grossest tweet made by any President, Frum tweeted "the grossest, most inappropriate, most self-flattering Memorial Day message in the history of the USA presidency".

Tammy Duckworth, who lost both legs in combat tweeted, "This #MemorialDay, we remember the fearless men & women who gave their lives to protect the freedoms we cherish. They came from every generation from towering cities and wind-swept prairies, from privilege and from poverty", Trump added. "They were generals and privates, captains and corporals of every race, color and of every creed". "This is a very special day and today our whole country thanks you, embraces you and pledges to you we will never forget our heroes". He is buried at Arlington.
