May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived.
[UPDATE: The tweet has been deleted. I've replaced the tweet embed above with the verbatim text of the deleted tweet. The headline of this post has also been updated to note the deletion.]
The only problem is that the shooting in Sutherland Springs, at the First Baptist Church there, happened on Nov. 5. The most recent mass shooting happened Tuesday morning in Rancho Tehama, California; four people were killed and at least 10 were injured.
So either Trump is confused or his social media helper is confused—but either way, clearly there is zero quality control surrounding @realDonaldTrump, even when the account is in playacting-presidential mode.
Trump actually tweeted very similar sentiments about Sutherland Springs the day after the shooting there:
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.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 5, 2017
That similarity has the Twittersphere speculating about the mechanics of @realDonaldTrump's playacting-presidential tweeting:
Did u just copy & paste this & forget to change the city?— Name cannot be blank (@cadillaccannon) November 15, 2017
I think that is EXACTLY what happened.— Amelia (@RocketsMom22) November 15, 2017
I'm surprised that his staff haven't removed this yet to correct it. They must be asleep.— Amelia (@RocketsMom22) November 15, 2017
He's recycling tweets.— TerryHasAnOpinon (@Terrysagirl) November 15, 2017
UPDATE #2: As of late Wednesday morning, Trump has yet to peck out a replacement thoughts-and-prayers-type tweet for the people of Rancho Tehama, but he's still been busy tweeting:
Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 15, 2017
The failing @nytimes hates the fact that I have developed a great relationship with World leaders like Xi Jinping, President of China.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 15, 2017
...They should realize that these relationships are a good thing, not a bad thing. The U.S. is being respected again. Watch Trade!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 15, 2017
