President Donald Trump tweeted condolences about a mass shooting late Tuesday evening, but it referenced the attack on the church in Sutherland Springs, Texas from more than a week ago.
The tweet appeared to have been deleted as of Wednesday morning.
Trump returned to the White House Tuesday night from a five-nation Asia tour.
Caught quickly by Twitter users, several news outlets and archived by deleted-Trump-tweet accounts, the tweet read: “May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived.”
Never miss a local story.
The shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs happened on Nov. 5.
People wondered whether the president - or possibly a staffer tweeting for him - meant to
reference the shootings on Tuesday in Rancho Tehama, Calif. that left at least four people dead.
He had tweeted a similar message after the Sutherland Springs attack, which occurred while he was in Asia.
That tweet read: “May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.”
Some people speculated that a saved draft had accidentally been tweeted. But many Twitter users slammed Trump, some accusing him of copy-and-paste condolences.
“At least get your mass shootings right, Mr President. This was last week. The new one is in California,” British talk show host Piers Morgan tweeted.
