Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a meme on Sunday that showed his dad, former President Donald Trump, holding a rifle and riding an eagle over Mount Rushmore – and Twitter users were quick to criticise it.
“Rolling into Fourth of July BBQ like a boss,” Trump Jr. wrote alongside the image, which also shows the presidents of Mount Rushmore wearing massive “Make America Great Again” caps.
Last Fourth of July, Trump spoke at Mount Rushmore and mused that one day his face could be carved in stone alongside George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
The timing was odd for such a gloating image. The Trump Organization and its chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, were charged last week with 15 felony counts, including those related to tax fraud, grand larceny and conspiracy.
Twitter critics replied to Trump Jr., saying they had a very different view of the former president on Independence Day.
