Trump Mocked Over 9/11 Claim With #LostTrumpHistory Memes: 'Trump Painted the Mona Lisa, Invented Cheeseburgers'

Social media users took to Twitter on Monday to mock President Donald Trump's 9/11 first responders claim by using the hashtag #LostTrumpHistory to include the president into other historical events that he was not involved in.

#LostTrumpHistory became the top trending hashtag on Twitter in the United States on Monday afternoon.

"Many of those affected were firefighters, police officers and other first responders," Trump said earlier today during a signing ceremony to extend the 9/11 victims compensation fund. "And I was down there also, but I'm not considering myself a first responder. But I was down there. I spent a lot of time down there with you."

After Trump's remarks, the president's critics quickly pointed out that he didn't offer any evidence to support the claim. The Washington Post noted several other instances where Trump had attempted to make 9/11 about himself, including when he called in to a local TV station on 9/11 to claim that after the World Trade Center falls, he would own the tallest building in downtown Manhattan. A decade later, Trump claimed he predicted 9/11.

In response, thousands of Twitter users began ridiculing Trump's latest 9/11 claim by posting #LostTrumpHistory memes of the president being inserted in other parts of history that he was not a part of.

"In 2019, astronomer Donald Trump discovered that the Moon was a part of Mars. #LostTrumpHistory," George Conway, husband of top White House aide Kellyanne Conway and one of Trump's most vocal critics, tweeted.
