President Joe Biden has been permitted to bring other presidents as guests to Queen Elizabeth II's funeral.
On Friday, CNN host Jake Tapper sent Twitter into a tailspin after suggesting Biden ask former President Donald Trump to attend the funeral with him.
"In the spirit of giving and forgiving … I think that the clever move is to invite him and see if he goes," Tapper said.
Tapper's deference toward Trump sent Twitter user's writing in, according to The List, a series of vehement comments.
"Trump stole classified documents and kept them at his home! He demanded a new election! He's a threat to national security! He deserves NOTHING!" one user wrote.
"Trump didn't even have the dignity & class to attend Biden's inauguration. Why should he be invited to the queen's funeral?" another commented.
