Fox News host Sean Hannity said Sunday that his positive retweet of a message that said “Make Russia Great Again” was a mistake.

Hannity originally wrote “Amen!!” with a link to a tweet that said, “YES! All Americans must join together to MAKE RUSSIA GREAT AGAIN. Teamwork!!” 

Though the tweet, which came from an account with the handle @donnielilhands, was deleted, Mediaite and several Twitter users took screenshots.

Another Twitter user criticized Hannity for not “reading carefully,” prompting the Fox News host to respond with an apology.

{mosads}“Guilty. And you are 100% correct. My mistake and I erased it and humbly apologize,” Hannity wrote.

He also responded to a user who said they thought the retweet was a funny mistake.
