President Donald Trump attempted to wish country music singer Lee Greenwood a happy birthday on Twitter Friday morning, but inadvertently tagged an unknown user who shares the singer’s name.

Trump was attempting to celebrate the life of 75-year-old country star, complimenting him on his signature song “God Bless The USA.” He ended up directing his public endorsement at a relatively anonymous Washington, D.C., lawyer who has 539 followers on Twitter.

The Lee Greenwood Trump was attempting to endorse performed his marquis song at Trump’s inauguration, prompting the new president to join in.


Greenwood, who identifies as a conservative Christian, complimented Trump in a Rolling Stone interview given after the inauguration. Greenwood called Trump a “patriot” and said “he’s going to be a great president” but would not reveal his voting record.

This is not first Trump’s first blunder on Twitter, his off the cuff messages often include grammatical errors and, on occasion, gibberish.
