On Friday, one United States military serviceman was killed and several others were wounded in Somalia. President Trump quickly took to social media to share that his thoughts and prayers were with the individuals and their families.

While not much information concerning the assault has been released, a U.S. spec-ops soldier was killed and four others suffered injuries following an “enemy attack.”

Trump expressed his sympathies in a tweet, but rather than have reverence for the fallen soldier, some people insensitively ridiculed a typo.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families of our serviceman who was killed and his fellow servicemen who were wounded in Somolia. They are truly all HEROES,” Trump said in a now-deleted tweet.

As Washington Examiner reports, Liberals on the social media outlet flipped out over the president’s misspelling of Somalia:

“Somalia. There is no SOMOLIA. Draft-dodging a**,” one person tweeted.

The president soon corrected his mistake and reposted his condolence message:

Here’s more on the attack, from Fox News:

U.S. troops with Somali and Kenyan forces came under mortar and small-arms fire in Jubaland, Somalia around 2:45 p.m. local time, U.S. Africa Command said in a statement.

The joint-coalition forces had been conducting an operation against al-Shabab militants about 217 miles southwest of the capital, Mogadishu, when the attack occurred, the statement said. The operation aimed to drive out the Somalia-based extremist group al-Shabab from contested areas.

Three of the four U.S. service members were transferred for medical treatment while the fourth received medical care on the spot, the Washington Post reported.

Al-Shabab claimed credit for the attack, the SITE Intelligence Group said in a statement Friday.

And, from BBC:

The US military says its forces operate on an “advise and assist” mission with the Somali National Army.

Traditionally, US presidents have been wary of intervening in Somalia since 18 special forces soldiers died fighting militias in Mogadishu in 1993, a battle dramatised in the film Black Hawk Down.

However, President Donald Trump has expanded military operations against al-Shabab, the al-Qaeda affiliate there.
