Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday urged Virginians to get out and vote for Republican candidate Ed Gillespie for governor, mistakenly telling them twice that the election is Wednesday. 

“Let’s take @EdWGillespie across the finish line tomorrow! Virginia: get out and vote for Ed & entire @GOP ticket #VAGov #VA”, Trump Jr. tweeted Tuesday morning.

CNN host Jake Tapper quickly pointed out that Trump Jr. had the wrong day, but a few hours later, the president’s son made the same mistake.

“Virginia, the future of the Commonwealth is at stake tomorrow. Find your polling place at vote.gop to vote Ed for #VAGov,” Trump Jr. tweeted a few hours later.

Replies quickly flooded in again, correcting Trump Jr. and pointing out that the election is on Tuesday.

He also ripped Gillespie’s opponent, Democratic nominee Ralph Northam, as “weak on crime” and weak on veterans, despite Northam’s work as an Army doctor.
