WASHINGTON — President Trump on Friday appeared to mix up Louisiana and Mississippi, or at least his travel plans, ahead of his late-afternoon trip to Tupelo, Miss., for a “Keep America Great” rally.
In a morning Twitter post, Mr. Trump wrote, “Louisiana, I’ll see you tonight. Big Rally for Eddie R. He will be a GREAT GOVERNOR. Early voting starts! @EddieRispone.”
The post was deleted a few minutes later.
The president’s rally in Mississippi is scheduled for Friday evening. He was in Louisiana about three weeks ago.
The president appeared at the Oct. 11 rally with Eddie Rispone, who is competing in a runoff election for governor of Louisiana later this month, but had not formally endorsed him.
Minutes after his initial tweet and deletion, Mr. Trump rallied his followers to support Mr. Rispone.
There was nothing on the president’s public schedule about an additional stop in Mississippi’s neighboring state. The president is scheduled to leave Washington late Friday afternoon.
The White House could not immediately be reached for comment.
