Dignity and Eloquence

Yesterday, Trump visited a Holocaust memorial in Israel, Yad Vashem. They have a guest book for visiting dignitaries. 

President Obama visited Yad Vashem in 2013. Here's what he wrote in the book:
I am grateful to Yad Vashem and all of those responsible for this remarkable institution. At a time of great peril and promise, war and strife, we are blessed to have such a powerful reminder of man's potential for great evil, but also our capacity to rise up from tragedy and remake our world. Let our children come here, and know this history, so that they can add their voices to proclaim 'never again.' And may we remember those who perished, not only as victims, but also as individuals who hoped and loved and dreamed like us, and who have become symbols of the human spirit.
Here's what "President" Trump wrote:
It’s a great honor to be here with all of my friends —so amazing + will NEVER FORGET!
Really surprised there isn't a "Wooo!!! US Electoral College 2016!!" in there.
