Trump tweets about the wrong mass shooting, gets trolled

At that time he tweeted "May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas".

Donald Trump has been accused of confusing different United States mass killings, after he sent condolences to the victims of a massacre in Texas in the wake of a shooting in California.

However, Trump's tweet seemed to refer to a separate shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas that took place last week on 5 November. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene.

It was also almost word-for-word the same as the tweet he had posted about the Sutherland Springs shooting shortly after it happened. "I am monitoring the situation from Japan".

Shortly after the tweet in question, Trump tweeted that it was "great to be home" from his trip to Asia over the last fortnight. Others were left baffled by the confusion.


However, the tweet above was posted as news broke that four people had been fatally shot by a lone gunman in Northern California. At least 10 people, including a 6-year-old boy, were wounded.

Some Twitter users said it appeared as though the President had forgotten to change the location of the incident while copying an earlier tweet.

Devin Patrick Kelley shot and killed 25 people at the church November 5.

While another poised: "Umm, did you mean the mass shooting in California? Can you make an effort to keep up with the carnage #ThoughtsAndPrayers, please?"

The wording of the latest tweet closely resembles that of Mr Trump's post after the Texas shooting.
