Trump tweets about the wrong mass shooting, gets trolled

A gunman randomly killed four people and wounded a number of others at multiple locations in rural Northern California, including an elementary school, before police shot him dead on Tuesday.

"May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived", the president tweeted.

The wording of the latest tweet closely resembles that of Mr Trump's post after the Texas shooting. "I am monitoring the situation from Japan". Melania Trump also tweeted: "Our hearts are with Texas".

Donald Trump appeared to get his mass shootings mixed up when he offered his condolences for Sutherland Springs, Texas, Tuesday night - in the wake of a massacre in Northern California.

Tehama Country Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said the gunman, who has not yet been named, tried to enter the Rancho Tehama Elementary school with the intention of shooting more children.

John Holcombe has arranged a public funeral for his family at an event center in Floresville, Texas, about 12 miles from the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, where the shooting occurred.

Another Twitter user wrote: "Did you just copy and paste this and forget to change the city?"

Matt McDermott tweeted, "The President of the United States is tweeting at midnight about the wrong mass shooting and it's like the 500th most insane Trump story of the week".
