On Easter Morning, President Donald Trump got off on the wrong foot on Twitter by mistakenly claiming “at least 138 million” were killed in terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka –a country of 21 million.
In the since-deleted tweet, Trump wrote: “Heartfelt condolences from the people of the United States to the people of Sri Lanka on the horrible terrorist attacks on churches and hotels that have killed at least 138 million people and badly injured 600 more. We stand ready to help!”
Needless to say, Twitter users was ready to pounce on yet another goof by the president who often tweets first, and maybe thinks about it after.
You can see some of the mockery below:
The stupid ass finally caught his error.

The population of Sri Lanka is 21.44 million. Are you telling me that these bastards have killed every person in the entire nation 7 times? pic.twitter.com/fAMWZy0kYs

Trump just irresponsibly claimed 138 MILLION people were killed in the Sri Lanka bombings. The entire population of Sri Lanka is about 21 million.
