In an unexpected turn of events (or lack thereof), the Biden administration did not issue an official statement commemorating the 77th anniversary of D-Day, one of the most crucial and renowned events of WWII.
Indeed, officials within Homeland Security verified to Fox News that while Kamala Harris posted a tweet on D-Day, Joe Biden instead tweeted a video about visiting with an eyewitness to the Tulsa riots in 1921. Surprisingly, Biden reiterated his desire to speak out on race problems, as he has done throughout his political career, while conveniently omitting to say which side of the issue he spoke out on.
Furthermore, when CNN interviewed Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Sunday, she missed “the golden opportunity” to honor D-Day.
Jill Biden, surprisingly, had a positive take on D-Day, even going so far as to tell people to “always pray for peace.” Jill Biden might certainly do her husband a favor by reminding him about D-Day.
Now fast forward to today, and Jen Psaki seems stumped as to why Biden chose to disregard D-Day:

On the 75th anniversary of D-Day, President Trump paid tribute to our heroes:
To the men who sit behind me, and to the boys who rest in the field before me, your example will never, ever grow old. (Applause.) Your legend will never tire. Your spirit — brave, unyielding, and true — will never die.
The blood that they spilled, the tears that they shed, the lives that they gave, the sacrifice that they made, did not just win a battle. It did not just win a war. Those who fought here won a future for our nation. They won the survival of our civilization. And they showed us the way to love, cherish, and defend our way of life for many centuries to come.
