26 people were killed after a man started shooting on November 5th at a Sunday service.

"May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas".

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 FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived", Trump, 71, tweeted close to midnight Wednesday.

President Trump was criticised in the wake of the Texas shooting earlier this month for saying the massacre was a "mental health problem", not "a gun situation" adding it was a "little bit soon" to get into a discussion about gun reform.

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.

Twitter users questioned the timing of the tweet and wondered if Trump accidentally sent out a saved draft. At least 10 people, including a 6-year-old boy, were wounded.

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

Responding to Trump's ill-timed tweet, user @cadillacannon wrote, "Did you just copy & paste this & forget to change the city?"
