United States President Donald Trump on Sunday erroneously misquoted the death toll to have risen to ‘138 million’ in the Sri Lanka terror bombings.
After the count had soared to 160 in the Easter Sunday blasts, President Trump took to Twitter to condemn the series of dastardly explosions on churches and hotels in Colombo.
However, the US president deleted the post minutes after it went viral.
“Heartfelt condolences from the people of the United States to the people of Sri Lanka on the horrible terrorist attacks on churches and hotels that have killed at least 138 million people and badly injured 600 more. We stand ready to help!”, he tweeted.
