NBC News issued a correction via Twitter on Sunday after President Trump called out the network earlier for “purposely” changing the meaning of his comments about Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant.
“CORRECTION: An earlier tweet misidentified the general President Trump described as ‘incredible’ at a rally in Ohio. It was Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, not Gen. Robert E. Lee. An attached video clip lacked the full context for Trump’s remark,” the network said in the posting.
It referred to an NBC tweet posted on Friday during a Trump rally in Lebanon, Ohio, when he was celebrating historical figures from the Buckeye State.
