President Trump recognized Monday as “Loyalty Day” — and his Twitter foes pounced.

The president emphasized the country’s “loyalty to individual liberties, to limited government, and the inherent dignity of every human being” in a proclamation Friday.

Critics treated the declaration as if it were a Trump creation.

But the holiday has been recognized by every president since Eisenhower, and was first observed in 1921 to counter the spread of communism following the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia.
