Donald Trump deletes congratulatory Chiefs tweet after mixing up Kansas, Missouri
Donald Trump had an oops! moment on Twitter after the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Trump sent a tweet congratulating the Kansas City Chiefs on winning the Super Bowl 31-20 over the San Francisco 49ers. His initial tweet congratulated the “Great State of Kansas”. Trump ended up deleting that tweet after being informed the Chiefs play in Kansas City, Missouri.
Sorry, Donnie, but Kansas City is in Missouri. Get out your sharpie. @realDonaldTrump @Chiefs pic.twitter.com/5mog7zirV4

His next tweet said “Great State of Missouri” instead.
Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on a great game and a fantastic comeback under immense pressure. We are proud of you and the Great State of Missouri. You are true Champions!

Kansas City borders Kansas, but the greater portion of it is in Missouri.
He should have just congratulated both states, or better yet, just said Kansas City to avoid all confusion!
