A possibly jet-lagged President Trump arrived back in the US late Tuesday—and sent his condolences to victims of the wrong mass shooting. "May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas," he tweeted around midnight. "The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived." Trump apparently meant to tweet about Tuesday's mass shooting in northern California, and the mix-up caused some Twitter users to speculate that he has been using a template to send tweets about massacres, People reports. After the Nov. 5 mass shooting in the Sutherland Springs church, Trump tweeted: "May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene."
