The tweet closely mirrored one he sent on November 5 for the victims of the Sutherland Springs shooting.

"May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas". On Nov. 5, Trump tweeted almost the same thing about the shooting in Texas, where a gunman killed 26 people at a church.

It seems like United States President, Donald Trump has mixed his updates on California and Texas mass shootings and tweeted about the wrong incident.

On Tuesday morning, a gunman went on a shooting rampage at multiple locations in Rancho Tehama, California, about 120 miles north of Sacramento, killing 4 and injuring at least 10. 'The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived'. 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.


Shortly after the tweet in question, Trump tweeted that it was "great to be home" from his trip to Asia over the last fortnight. The new one is in California'.

It's not uncommon for presidents to express condolences after a mass shooting in America, but it's certainly unusual for them to forget the city in which it occurred. This is so disrespectful to the victims'. It was deleted around eight hours later according to a report from Huffington Post. He was later shot by police after a stand-off.

Seven people, including children, are being treated for gunshot wounds.
