Trump Tweets Condolences for Wrong Mass Shooting

Trump Tweets Condolences for Wrong Mass Shooting

Shortly before midnight on Tuesday night, Trump tweeted: "May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas".

Four people were killed and several children were injured when a gunman stormed Rancho Tehama Elementary School in California on Tuesday in the latest USA mass shooting.

On Nov. 5, Trump tweeted almost the same thing about the shooting in Texas, where a gunman killed 26 people at a church. "The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived".

The shooting occurred more than a week ago.

Recently back from Asia, President Trump resumed his morning tweeting routine, this time citing what he's calling a "successful" trip and slamming a regular media target. When your president sends what appears to be a generic tweet about the latest assault on American lives? However, people on social media accused Trump of copying and pasting his heartfelt condolences, given the similarity between the tweet on November 5 and the one sent out on Tuesday night.

The California gunman who killed at least four people and hospitalized ten others was identified on Tuesday as Kevin Janson Neal, 43.

"May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas", he wrote.

The tweet remained on the President's Twitter page for five hours, but has now been deleted.

Twitter users sarcastically replied to Trump, saying it was natural for him to be confused due to the excessive number of recent mass shootings.
