President Obama made a historic visit to Hiroshima, Japan --- the site of the first atomic bombing, which killed an estimated 140,000 people.
As the first U.S. president to visit this landmark in the 71 years since the atomic strike, Obama expressed sympathy for the victims and renewed calls for an end to nuclear weapons. He did not, however, apologize for the decision to drop the bomb.
Many Americans disapprove of Obama's trip --- especially with the timing being so close to Memorial Day --- considering the more than 10,000 Americans who died in Japanese camps during World War II, often under appalling conditions.
What do you think? Take the poll below.
