Trump lashes out at wrong Theresa May on Twitter

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is lashing out at British Prime Minister Theresa May in a dispute over his tweets. Problem is, he initially picked on the wrong Theresa May.

Trump was responding to May's criticism of his decision to tweet anti-Muslim videos.

Online sports archives - http://www.tutevilla.org/category/sports/ of Trump's tweets show the president tweeted Wednesday night to a Twitter user with the handle @theresamay. That user is identified - http://www.Paramuspost.com/search.php?query=identified&type=all&mode=sea... as a woman with a different last name who has only six followers - http://www.Theepochtimes.com/n3/search/?q=followers .

That tweet was soon deleted and Trump sent a new message to May's correct Twitter handle, @theresa_may. He told May not to focus on him and instead worry about "destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom."
