What stood out to most people posting to Twitter was the US embassy in London's omission of the fact that Mar-a-Lago is now a dues-collecting private business.
That in turn has led people to accuse the State Department of actively promoting Trump's businesses, which his children still run.
Readers also latched onto the fact that the State Department echoed the White House's use of the term "winter White House."
Members of Congress soon began weighing in as well, including one Democratic lawmaker who called the post "absurd."
By Monday evening, the post had been scrubbed, with just two sentences replacing the entirety of it: “The intention of the article was to inform the public about where the President has been hosting world leaders. We regret any misperception and have removed the post.”
