House Democrats were forced to delete a tweet announcing its “Kids in Cages” hearing this week after realizing the photograph they used to promote the event was taken during the Obama Administration.

In a tweet yesterday, the House Oversight Committee posted wrote, “Last week, members of our committee visited a detention center at the southern border and discovered grotesque treatment of children. This week, we are examining the inhumane treatment of the children in these detention centers.”

The tweet included a photograph of migrant children behind a cage sleeping on the floor with solar blankets, however, it was taken in 2014, during the Obama administration.

The Trump campaign was quick to point out the mistake, and called out the Democrats on Twitter.

“House Democrats are promoting their ‘civil rights’ hearing on ‘kids in cages’ and ‘inhumane treatment’ with a photo from 2014, when Joe Biden was Vice President. So dishonest!” the campaign wrote.

House Oversight Committee Republicans also pointed out the error, writing on Twitter, “You all know that’s a picture from 2014, right? Remind us who was President then.”
