Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Out-of-touch president refuses to say "radical Shintuism." WEAK!
The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump I will make America the BEST at solicitating and conversing.
Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese Ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Very suspicious chronology. Let's see First Lady's diaries NOW!
It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Visiting Hawaii? Stay at Trump International Hotel & Tower ® Waikiki Beach Walk ®. World class!
During the intervening time the Japanese Government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Too many microphones on podium. Tacky. Overcompensating for skinny legs?
The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Fish in NJ were cheering as ships went down. What are dolphins always smiling at? Shintuists? Not good.
Very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Japanese much better at soldiering than us, armying. We're weak, fat like Deanna Durbin. Hate to be "politically incorrect." Just a fact.
Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump The president's daughter!
Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Wait.... Where they make my polyester ties??? #thisshitjustgotreal
Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam. Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands. Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island. This morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump President is babbling. Fear itself or something wrong with Teleprompter?
Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump The Navy? GONE! The Army? GONE! The Andrews Sisters? DEAD!
The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump The dolphins are coming! Also porpoises, if they turn out to be the same thing. #buildingpanic
As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump "I" "I" "I"... What's wrong with this guy? Stop making this all about you, crutchy! Concentrate on escape!
Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Where was Pearl Harbour's wall? #doomed!!!!!
I believe I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump I wonder if Franco is hiring.
Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Burn everything you can't carry! Start with my ties!
With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounded determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Spare me and I'll tell you where Esther Waters is hiding.
I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December seventh, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire."
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Welcome our dolphin overlords. Konnichiwa!
