A progressive veterans advocacy group ripped President Trump’s Memorial Day tweet bragging about the economy under his administration.

“This is the most inappropriate #MemorialDay comment that a @POTUS has ever made,” VoteVets tweeted on Monday.

“Cadet Bone Spurs” is a nickname given to Trump over his multiple Vietnam War draft deferments by Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), a veteran who lost both her legs while serving in Iraq.

VoteVets was responding to Trump’s morning tweet, in which he said fallen service members “would be very happy” with how the country is doing today.
