Eric Trump appears to think that President Barack Obama was the President of the United States in 2008.
On Monday, President Trump’s son tweeted a picture of President Obama visiting the DMZ in South Korea in 2012 compared to a photo of President Trump crossing into North Korea on Sunday. Eric wrote: “DMZ 2008 vs. DMZ 2019#KeepAmericaGreat”

In response to the tweet, CNBC’s John Harwood noted: “Barack Obama was not president, and did not visit the DMZ, in 2008”
Barack Obama was inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States on Tuesday, January 20, 2009.

Twitter users blasted the president’s son, with one user noting that “propping up a dictator doesn’t make America ‘great.’ ”
Not to mention, propping up a dictator doesn't make America "great."

Also: A reminder that Kim Jong Un wanted $2 million in medical fees after returning Warmbier to U.S. custody after 15 months in captivity. He was in a coma and died days after returning home to Ohio. @annafifield broke that story in April https://t.co/zEq4mdS8uN

To be honest, the top photo is from 2012, back when we had a President.

Those Trump boys aren’t the brightest bulbs in the pack. President Obama visited the Korean DMZ in March 2012.

In a dictatorship, facts don’t matter. Just the story the Great Leader decides to spin. Or his son or daughter or son-in-law.
