Trump shares then deletes tweet praising Chiefs for representing ‘Great State of Kansas’
President Trump tweeted and then deleted a message congratulating the Kansas City Chiefs for representing the “Great State of Kansas” after the team’s victory at the Super Bowl in Miami on Sunday night.
“Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on a great game, and a fantastic comeback, under immense pressure,” Trump wrote in the since-deleted tweet. “You represented the Great State of Kansas and, in fact, the entire USA, so very well. Our Country is PROUD OF YOU!”
Shortly after deleting the tweet, Trump shared a similar message praising the team and “the Great State of Missouri” after it secured a 31-20 victory against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The Kansas City Chiefs are based in Kansas City, Mo.
“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,” he tweeted. “You are true Champions!”
