Trump tweets about the wrong mass shooting, gets trolled

The US President's tweet appears to reference a shooting at a Texas church on 6 November, in which 26 people were killed. The gunman behind the rampage shot 14 people, killing four, in seven different locations, including an elementary school, before he died in a shootout with police. At that time he tweeted "May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas".

President Trump was criticised in the wake of the Texas shooting earlier this month for saying the massacre was a "mental health problem", not "a gun situation" adding it was a "little bit soon" to get into a discussion about gun reform.

Even TV presenter Piers Morgan, a friend of the United States leader, tweeted Trump to point out his error.

The shootings in California occurred in the rural community of Rancho Tehama Reserve, a homeowners association in a sparsely populated area about 130 miles north of Sacramento.

Thus, he added, separate references cannot be filed against him, requesting the court to club together all three references. The second witness Federal Board of Revenue's (FBR) Jahangir Ahmad also appeared before the Court to record his statements.

Comment on the apparent error came swiftly from Twitter users, who accused the president of copying and pasting the tweet due to its similarity to one he sent on November 5.

While another poised: "Umm, did you mean the mass shooting in California? Understandable. It's hard to keep track of all of them".

After two hours, the tweet is still visible on Trump's social media account.

"The fact that the USA president can't even keep track of all the mass shootings is a fairly compelling argument for gun reform", Melissa McEwan wrote.
