National Public Radio (NPR) tweeted the Declaration of Independence, and people got angry and confused.
However, some people did not recognize the lines from the cherished American document and thought that NPR was criticizing current President Donald Trump, instead of the Founders’ criticisms of King George III back in 1776. Some Twitter users accused NPR of inciting violence.
Many people called for NPR to be defunded because of bias.
Some people even called the Declaration “trash.”
Other Twitter users were quick to point out that NPR was just tweeting out one of the most well-known documents in our nation’s history.
Meanwhile, President Trump celebrated the holiday by hosting members of the military at the White House.
