Correction: Donald Trump's Reaction To Coup Attempt In Turkey

KELLY MCEVERS, HOST:

We made a mistake on Friday during our continued coverage of the attempted coup in Turkey.

AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

While speaking with a reporter based in Istanbul, we mentioned Donald Trump's reaction to the day's events, reporting that he'd tweeted that people were taking their country back as they may do so in the United States.

MCEVERS: But @realDonaldTrump did not tweet that day about Turkey. What we had seen was a retweet, and it was actually from a parody of his Twitter account.

CORNISH: We regret the error. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
