(CNN) -- President Trump made a geographical mistake on Super Bowl Sunday.

Within minutes of the Kansas City Chiefs winning the big game, Trump sent a tweet congratulating the state of Kansas, but the team is Missouri-based.

There is a Kansas City in Kansas, but the Chiefs aren't from there. About ten minutes after the tweet was sent out, President Trump deleted it and sent another one with the correct state.

The Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-to-20 Sunday night.

Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named the game's MVP.
