Trump has since deleted the tweet, but it was up for several hours. (Edit: No, he deleted the original tweet, but it's still up, just with the proper spelling now. Unbelievable.)
After NBA star Dwyane Wade’s cousin was shot and killed while walking her baby in Chicago, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump shamelessly tried to exploit another senseless gun violence death but managed to misspell the name of the Chicago Bulls guard.
Wade has been speaking out against gun violence, especially in his hometown of Chicago, but the senseless tragedy touched his own family as his cousin was fatally shot as a gunman opened fire on her and another man while she was walking her baby.
Never missing a chance to exploit any tragedy, big or small for his own personal gain, Trump tweeted:
Wade tweeted this last night.
My cousin was killed today in Chicago. Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. #EnoughIsEnough

New spelling tweet.
Dwyane Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!

This tweet highlights the utter cynicism of Trump's folly:
UPDATE 2: A couple of hours ago Trump tweeted this further bit of cynicism. Or one of his minions did. The spelling seems right for a change.
