Social media users were quick to criticize Trump for his show of patriotism in light of the administration’s controversial zero tolerance policy on illegal border crossings resulting in family separations.

“Perhaps we can issue small stuffed flags to the children in detention who are forbidden to hug each other?” one user wrote.
