After the Orlando shooting, the wrong speech was uploaded into the teleprompter that Trump read.

Trump claimed during his speech the day after the terrorist attack that the shooter was “born in Afghan,” evidence in favor of his proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the country. That wasn’t true; the killer’s parents were born in Afghanistan, but he was born in Queens, not far from the neighborhood where Trump himself was born.

While many chalked the error up to Trump’s, uh, rocky relationship with the truth, the fault didn’t lie with the Republican presumptive nominee at all. Bloomberg reports that the speech as written was accurate, but “staffers had accidentally uploaded the wrong version of the speech into the teleprompters and later posted the correct version on Trump’s Facebook page.”
