The tweet was deleted on Wednesday morning, but not before the president was widely mocked for appearing to offer his condolences about the wrong mass shooting.
White House officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Trump rarely deletes his freewheeling tweets, though sometimes he deletes and fixes the posts with typos. Trump had already tweeted his support for the people of Sutherland Springs from Japan, a stop on his 12-day trip to Asia.
“May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas,” he wrote on Nov. 5. “The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.”
Earlier Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence tweeted a message of support for the Northern California shooting victims.
“Saddened to hear of the shooting in N. California, the loss of life & injuries, including innocent children,” Pence wrote. “We commend the effort of courageous law enforcement. We’ll continue to monitor the situation & provide federal support, as we pray for comfort & healing for all impacted.”
