In the tweet, Trump referred to Wasserman Schultz as "Wendy Wasserman Schultz."

Trump corrected the tweet about 50 minutes later.

"Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats. This can be good news in that we will now counter for the DNC Server that they refused to give to the FBI, the Wendy Wasserman Schultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton Emails," Trump originally tweeted.

His follow-up tweet correctly identified Wasserman Schultz.

The president's tweet came hours after the DNC filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

That lawsuit alleges that the defendants conspired to disrupt the 2016 presidential election and undermine Clinton's campaign by hacking the DNC's servers and disseminating stolen information.
