US President Donald Trump on Friday made the classic Good Friday gaffe, mistaking it for Easter and wishing people. Interestingly, Trump has not yet deleted the tweet, which has garnered over 30,000 retweets.  

However, Trump, known for his incessant tweeting habits and controversial tweets, was not spared by Twitterati, who tore into him for lacking the basic schoolboy knowledge.

For the uninitiated, Good Friday is a day of sorrow, fasting and penance and commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Calvary. On the other hand, Easter Sunday is a day commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead as per the New Testament.

Here are a few tweets that slammed the US President for his apparent ignorance.
