Everyone compares President Donald Trump with former President Barack Obama. Many times, Trump described himself better, stronger and sharper than his predecessor. But when it comes to signing a guest book, one can decide who is better. On Tuesday, Mr. Trump visited Israel’s Holocaust memorial and left a note in a guest book.
He wrote: “It is a great honor to be here with all my friends- So amazing & will never forget.”
According to The Telegraph, the note was immediately compared to an entry by Mr. Obama from July 2008. “I am grateful to Yad Vashem and all those responsible for this remarkable institution. At a time of great peril and promise, war and strife, we are blessed to have such a powerful reminder of man’s potential for great evil, but also our capacity to rise up from tragedy and remake our world.”
He further added: “Let our children come here, and know this history, so that they can add their voices to proclaim ‘never again’. And may we remember those who perished, not only as victims, but also as individuals who hoped and loved and dreamed like us, and who have become symbols of the human spirit.”
Twitter users compared the two notes:
