Trump Is Being Hammered Online For Tweeting Condolences About The Wrong Mass Shooting

People online are blasting President Donald Trump after he appeared to offer his condolences on Twitter about the wrong mass shooting.

Trump tweeted about the wrong mass shooting late Tuesday after a gunman launched a gun rampage in California and killed at least four people before trying to enter an elementary school.

“May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Sutherland Springs is a village in Texas where ten days earlier a gunman had killed 26 people at a church. He had tweeted a similar message after the November 5 attack.

“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,” he wrote at the time.

Social media users accused him of copying and pasting the message and using it as a template for mass shootings.

“Jesus, he copy pasted his response to a mass shooting and forgot to change the location. What a clown,” one user wrote in response.

British presenter Piers Morgan wrote on Twitter: “At least get your mass shootings right, Mr President. This was last week. The new one is in California.”

One user tweeted: “This shooting took place ten days ago. Ten.”

Another wrote: “Today the president of the United States couldn’t remember and didn’t even bother to check where the country’s most recent mass shooting took place.”
