Trump tweets about the wrong mass shooting, gets trolled

Trump has offered condolences to the wrong shooting on Wednesday in a Tweet which read "May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived", although more than a week had passed at the time of his tweet.
Social media users tore into President Trump on Tuesday after he tweeted about the Texas church shooting nine days after gunman Devin Kelley killed 25 people and an unborn child. "Bad insult to the victims of both", the European media director of Human Rights Watch said. This was last week.
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 new one is in California". Melania Trump also tweeted: "Our hearts are with Texas".
Another Twitter user wrote: "Did you just copy and paste this and forget to change the city?"
He began his rampage near his home on Bobcat Lane in the Rancho Tehama Reserve at 7.52am, shooting people at random before stealing a truck and performing drive-bys on homes, pedestrians and other drivers.
He was stopped after staff at the school heard shots and started their lockdown procedure, a measure which saved lives, Mr Johnston added.
"The shooter literally took his vehicle and rammed their fence and gate, entered the grounds on foot with a semiautomatic rifle", he told USA media.
