In 2016, when he was running for president, Trump fired off this odd line of attack on President Barack Obama as he visited the nation:
Does President Obama ever discuss the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor while he’s in Japan? Thousands of American lives lost. #MDW

Now, with Trump in Japan almost exactly three years later, the president’s Twitter critics are wondering if he brought the matter up to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe:
On Memorial Day weekend, 3 years ago, Trump criticized Obama for not discussing “the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor while he’s in Japan.” I wonder if a journalist might want to ask him whether he’s going to bring it up now that he’s in Japan, as president, on Memorial Day weekend? https://t.co/B4XKbJm6X8

Did you discuss the “sneak attack on Pearl Harbor” like you criticized Obama for not doing in 2016?

Remember you wanted Obama to ask..
