In the “tweet for everything” department, an old message by President Donald Trump is getting new attention as he visits Japan.

In 2016, when he was running for president, Trump fired off this odd line of attack on President Barack Obama as he visited the nation:

Does President Obama ever discuss the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor while he's in Japan? Thousands of American lives lost. #MDW

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 28, 2016

Now, with Trump in Japan almost exactly three years later, the president’s Twitter critics are wondering if he brought the matter up to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe:

On Memorial Day weekend, 3 years ago, Trump criticized Obama for not discussing “the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor while he’s in Japan.” I wonder if a journalist might want to ask him whether he’s going to bring it up now that he’s in Japan, as president, on Memorial Day weekend? https://t.co/B4XKbJm6X8

“Does President Obama ever discuss the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor while he's in Japan? Thousands of American lives lost. #MDW” Remember this tweet exactly 3 years ago, Donny? #hypocrite

Did you ask them about Pearl Harbor like you told Obama to do in 2016? https://t.co/2qfynAKJoC

Obama never had to discuss Pearl Harbor because that score was rather famously settled. https://t.co/6Rzuf4igYJ
