Melania Trump sent out a message today in remembrance of the attack on Pearl Harbor — with the wrong date.
The attack, which prompted the United States to join World War II, happened on Dec. 7, 1941, when Japanese planes surprise attacked the Pearl Harbor naval base in Hawaii.
“Today we honor Pearl Harbor Heroes,” she sent in a now-deleted tweet McClatchy captured with a screenshot. “11/7/1941 Thank you to all military for your courage and sacrifice!”
Around 2,300 American servicemen died in the attack, with just over 1,000 more injured.
Never miss a local story.
The First Lady quickly resent her tweet with the correct date.
But others noticed her mistake.
And others noticed that President Donald Trump had a minor mistake in a tweet he also composed in honor of the day.
