In the past, Donald Trump has taken a moment on 9/11 to boast about the size of his buildings:

And to offer his “best wishes” to the “even the haters and losers”:
“@realDonaldTrump: I would like to extend my best wishes to all, even the haters and losers, on this special date, September 11th.”

But now that he’s president, he’s taking a different approach to commemorating this day:

Today’s tribute is really rubbing some people the wrong way.
I've seen Hollywood trailers that focused less on the lead actor than President Trump focuses on himself in this video ostensibly about 9/11 https://t.co/uDSlwUzni6

A video about you. On 9/11. Shocker.

There was an awful lot of Trump in a video that was supposed to be about 911.

This is the most narcissistic tribute I've ever seen.

Holy shit. A 9/11 tribute video that's entirely shots of Trump? No first responders, fire fighters, police, victims. It's unreal.

No pictures of survivors, first responders? Mr. President, for real: Not everything is about you. (In fact, most things aren't.)

This is just bizarre…where are the families, the heros, the first responders? This is a sick day for narcissism. Gross.

Maybe he’s just trying to carry on one of his predecessor’s most famous traditions …
Wonder how many conservative tropes about Obama Trump can exemplify before someone notices. https://t.co/CA9xX6aut6

This is just a video of Trump. Not honoring victims or their families. Obama tweeting photos of himself for all holidays wasn't this bad. ? https://t.co/GklOWVOM4v
