Donald Trump sends condolences to wrong town after mass shooting

Tweet on Twitter

Donald Trump does it once again, on his favorite social network. This Tuesday evening, in an attempt to send condolences for a mass shooting, he mentioned the wrong town in his tweet.

According to CBS News, a gunman opened fire in Rancho Tehama, Northern California, using a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns, making four victims. Eventually, the suspect wounded more victims at an elementary school, right before the officers shot and killed them.

What tweet?

Trump’s response, which was deleted in the meantime, but is timestamped at 11:34 p.m. on November 14, mentioned another similar unfortunate event. To be more specific, the President’s tweet referred to the mass shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Spring, Texas, which happened on November 5, resulting in 26 deaths and 20 injured people.

“May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived,” Donald Trump wrote, offering his thoughts and prayer to the wrong town.

Apparently, this tweet was informed by his initial message, regarding the shooting in Sutherland Springs.

“May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas,” his previous tweet, sent on November 5, read. “The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.”

The Internet reacted immediately!

Obviously, a lot of users noticed this mistake and quickly criticized him, claiming that he keeps making such mistakes lately. Some of them even mentioned that, considering how often mass shootings have occurred in the United States lately, it’s actually hard to keep track of them.

Unfortunately, this is actually true and there’s no sign of stopping, unless a new firearms regulation will be issued, restricting access to guns for anybody.
