After the game, President Donald Trump attempted to tweet his congratulations to the Chiefs for their victory. Unfortunately for the president, he mistakenly referenced the team as being from the state of Kansas, when the Chiefs actually hail from Kansas City, Missouri. Trump quickly deleted and corrected his tweet, but not before plenty of Twitter users captured the moment for posterity. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, defeating the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 to lift the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in 50 years. After the game, President Donald Trump tweeted congratulations to the team. "Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on a great game and a fantastic comeback under immense pressure," Trump wrote. "We are proud of you and the Great State of Kansas. You are true Champions!" As many Twitter users were quick to point out, there was one small problem with Trump's tweet — the Kansas City Chiefs are based in Missouri, not Kansas.
