After taking some social media flak from conservatives about a two year old tweet that dealt with the September 11 attacks, that message from Donald Trump was deleted from Twitter this morning.

“I would like to extend my best wishes to all, even the haters and losers, on this special date, September 11th,” Trump wrote back on September 11, 2013.

I took a screenshot of the tweet before it became inaccessible.

Trump’s original tweet is no longer linked on the internet; instead you get “This Tweet is unavailable.”

This morning, conservative commentator Bill Kristol raised attention to the post from 2013, labeling Trump’s original comment from two years ago, “pathetic.”
