Donald Trump has already taken his very first actions as President of the United States. The newly-inaugurated president signed a proclamation declaring a National Day of Patriotism.

According to Reuters, Trump “also signed into a law a waiver to allow Defense Secretary-designate James Mattis, a retired U.S. Marine Corps general, to serve,” in addition to sending to Cabinet nominations to the Senate. His staff also unveiled their intentions to kill former President Barack Obama’s climate change plan. Shortly after the inauguration ceremony, Trump resumed tweeting on his @realDonaldTrump handle, in addition to his new @POTUS account.

Many on social media, however, pointed out that a National Day of Patriotism already exists: Fourth of July. There’s also a Patriot’s Day observed on Sept. 11, which many also pointed out. Twitter users were quick to point out the strange proclamation while others supported the idea of a National Patriotism Day. Take a look at how people responded to the National Day of Patriotism proclamation below:
