Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a meme on Sunday that showed his father, former President Donald Trump, holding a gun and riding an eagle over Mount Rushmore – and Twitter users were quick to criticize him.
“Off to the 4th of July barbecue like a boss,” Trump Jr. wrote next to the image, which also shows the Presidents of Mount Rushmore wearing massive “Make America Great Again” caps.
On July 4, Trump spoke at Mount Rushmore and thought that one day his face could be carved in stone alongside George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
The timing was strange for such a jubilant image. The Trump Organization and its chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg were indicted last week with 15 counts, including those related to tax evasion, robbery and conspiracy.
Twitter critics responded to Trump Jr., saying they took a very different view of the former president on Independence Day.
