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

It was also almost word-for-word the same as the tweet he had posted about the Sutherland Springs shooting shortly after it happened. 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.

The tragic shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas has changed our way of thinking. At that time he tweeted "May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas".

This will be a discussion type forum where law enforcement officials will discuss best practices and give the public a chance to ask questions.

It isn't clear if the tweet was mistakenly resent or if Trump meant to respond to Tuesday's shooting in the rural community of Rancho Tehama in California.

Donald Trump has been accused of confusing different United States mass killings, after he sent condolences to the victims of a massacre in Texas in the wake of a shooting in California.

This led to many claims that the president had been "copying and pasting" his tweets. "Understandable. It's hard to keep track of all of them".

Four hours after the tweet was sent, despite criticism, it remained live on the social network.

"The fact that the US president can't even keep track of all the mass shootings is a fairly compelling argument for gun reform", Melissa McEwan wrote.

People on Twitter were quick to notice the mix-up, including Piers Morgan who wrote: "At least get your mass shootings right, Mr President".
