  • Both President Donald Trump and first lady Melania
    Trump made small errors on tweets commemorating the attack on
    Pearl Harbor.
  • Thursday is the 76th anniversary of the attack that
    launched the US’s involvement in World War II.

President Donald Trump slightly misquoted one of former President
Franklin Roosevelt’s most famous speeches in a tweet
commemorating the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.

“National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day – ‘A day that will live in
infamy!’ December 7, 1941,” Trump
tweeted on Thursday morning
.

In his speech
marking the attack
on Pearl Harbor, FDR called it “a date
which will live in infamy.”

Thursday is the 76th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, a
Japanese assault on a US naval base that resulted in the deaths
of 2,402 Americans, numerous injuries, and the sinking of four
battleships.

The first lady, Melania Trump, also made a small mistake in a
tweet commemorating the anniversary.

“Today we honor Pearl Harbor Heroes. 11/7/1941 Thank you to all
military for your courage and sacrifice!,” Melania
Trump tweeted Thursday
.

11/7/1941 is November 7, 1941. The correct way to write the Pearl
Harbor attack’s date is 12/7/1941.

About 30 minutes later, Melania Trump deleted the original tweet
and posted another tweet with the correct
date.
