Type: Discontinues Respectful TraditionsNov 12 2018 Severity:

Donald Trump refused to visit Arlington National Cemetery to pay respect to our nations fallen soldiers on Veterans Day, ignoring a custom that previous Presidents of both political parties have done for years. Instead of visiting our nations fallen heroes, Trump is instead holed up in the White House residence with nothing on his public schedule listed for the entire day.
