Sarah Palin attacked President Obama’s historic trip to Hiroshima while speaking to Donald Trump supporters at a California rally on Friday. 

{mosads}The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee pivoted to Obama’s trip during her opening speech for Trump, calling the trip an “apology lap,” the Washington Post reported, in the Japanese city that was flattened by a US atomic bomb.

Palin said Obama was “dissing our vets” and that he believes “the greatest generation was perpetuating the evil of World War II.”

“Our commander in chief suggesting – actually, lying in suggestions – to the world that we were wrong to prove that we would eradicate evil in World War II,” she said.

The president did not apologize for the U.S.’ decision to use an atomic bomb to end World War II in his visit to the memorial site in Hiroshima Friday.

“Death fell from the sky and the world was changed,” Obama said during a speech at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, dedicated to the victims of the world’s first nuclear strike.

During his remarks, he called for a world without nuclear weapons. 

“We may not eliminate mankind’s capacity to do evil,” he said. “But among those nations like my own that hold nuclear stockpiles, we must have the courage to escape the logic of fear and pursue a world without them.”
