Donald Trump caught 'copying and pasting' condolence message about mass shooting

Donald Trump is accused of tweeting condolences to the WRONG mass shooting by 'copy and pasting' church shooting

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

President Donald Trump offered condolences to the wrong mass shooting after four were killed in northern California on Tuesday.

The shooting in Sutherland Springs happened just over a week ago. "The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived", although more than a week had passed at the time of his tweet.

It's possible that a draft tweet could have been inadvertently sent out, given the similarities between the November 5 tweet and the one sent on Tuesday night.

Trump's misguided tweet was timestamped at 11:34 p.m. and remained live as of early Wednesday morning.

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.

Here's the thing though, the tragedy at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, which left 26 dead, occurred on November 5, when Trump's account tweeted out a similar response in the aftermath.

People on Twitter were quick to notice the mix-up, including Piers Morgan who wrote: "At least get your mass shootings right, Mr President". It was deleted around eight hours later according to a report from Huffington Post.

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