The Missouri Republican Party has come under fire for a tone-deaf tweet it sent after President Donald Trump's speech on taxes Wednesday in Springfield, MO.

In July, Republican lawmakers reversed a plan to increase the minimum wage in St. Louis to $10 an hour.

After Trump gave his speech vaunting tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans as a means of increasing wages and opportunities for the working class, the Missouri GOP Twitter account congratulated him and said, "You are right -- it’s time to give the American worker a pay raise!"

The irony was not lost on social media users.
