Trump Deletes ‘Great State of Kansas’ Tweet, Faces Backlash

President Donald Trump posted and then deleted a tweet in which he congratulated the Kansas City Chiefs and the representation of the “Great State of Kansas” following 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!”

However, even though the tweet was deleted very quickly, the post did not go unnoticed on Twitter.

“It’s Missouri you stone cold idiot,” Claire McCaskill tweeted.
