President Donald Trump told his Twitter followers on Monday that he was so looking forward to speaking at the American Farm Bureau’s annual convention in Nashville. But the convention was actually in New Orleans.
“Love our farmers, love Tennessee — a great combination!” he tweeted.
Trump spoke at the convention last year — in Nashville.
The tweet was quickly deleted, but not before critics and CNN made hay out of it.
The overriding theme of Twitter reactions was that such a befuddled president can’t be a good thing.
Trump did later make it to the right city.
Trump deletes Tweet claiming to love farmers and says he can’t wait to meet them in Nashville, except they’re in New Orleans today. It’s the little things, like Trade Wars, shutting down USDA and knowing where he’s going that Trump gets wrong for farmers https://t.co/Vmpt06e53g

It’s better to be silent and be thought a fool, than to tweet and remove all doubt!

He will, however, be going to Nashville for Mardi Gras.
