“Disgusting display by Trump. No mention of #MemorialDay. He shouldn’t be allowed at anniversary of D-Day June 6. I was there Sunday. What an honor to recall what brave Americans did for freedom,” Cohen tweeted Tuesday.

King tweeted Monday that it was wrong for Trump to criticize Biden and side with Kim.

“Politics stops at water’s edge. Never right to side with a murderous dictator vs. fellow American,” King said on Twitter.

Cohen is among the 30-plus House Democrats who have called for an impeachment inquiry against the president.

Trump has said he plans to travel to France for events commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day, on June 6.

He spent Memorial Day weekend in Japan, where he backed Kim’s “low IQ individual” characterization of the former vice president.
