On holocaust remembrance day, the world honors those who lost their lives during the those tragic years. While Donald Trump gave a speech on the issue, social media users were quick to point out the irony.

Trump on Holocaust

During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump was often accused of many things, including rhetoric that many believe was "racist," "sexist," "anti-Semitic," and other forms of prejudice. Trump denied the allegations against him, but some of his administrative decisions have since raised red flags. While Trump has brought on board his Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushncer, the addition of former Breitbart News CEO Steve Bannon has caused a much-publicized feud between the two.

Bannon has long-been accused of being anti-Semitic and a white nationalist, though he, like Trump, denies the claims against him. Another issue plaguing the White House over the topic of the Holocaust and the Jewish people is how press secretary Sean Spicer handled a question about the recent bombing in Syria. In an attempt to criticize Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Spicer falsely stated that even Adolf Hitler didn't use chemical weapons on his own people, in response to the chemical weapons attack ordered by Assad earlier this month. As reported by Fox News on April 25, Trump spoke about Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Standing at Capitol Hill, Donald Trump delivered a speech addressing the Jewish people in memory of those lost in the Holocaust.

"The survivors in this hall, through their testimony, fulfill the righteous duty to never forget...the Nazi genocide," Trump said. "That is why we are here today, to remember and to bear witness, to make sure that humanity never ever forgets the Nazis' massacre," he continued. "Those who deny the Holocaust are an accomplice to this horrible evil," Trump noted, before adding, "We will never, ever be silent in the face of evil again."

"Nobody has done more to spread anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial in the past year than Donald Trump," actress Wrika Heidewald wrote on Twitter.

"It's #HolocaustRemembranceDay and Donald Trump hasn't retweeted a Holocaust denier all day.

The Media is about to praise the new Trump," one Twitter user wrote. "Trump is supported by white supremacists who can't wait to purge the world of non whites. Trump's obsession with banning all Muslims, same," another tweet read. The tweets kept pouring in, with the negatives outweighing the positives when it comes to reaction of the president's speech.
