A congresswoman said Tuesday she finds it "deeply disturbing" that the White House website linked to a tweet from Karen Pence instead of President Trump's new national security strategy.
The error sent people who attempt to download the "full NSS report" to a tweet from Vice President Mike Pence's wife showing a video of her family's "patriotic" Christmas tree. It has been corrected.
As #Christmas approaches, we honor military service members and their families. We appreciate the sacrifices you make to protect our freedoms, especially around this time of year. #Watchvideo #Militaryfamilies pic.twitter.com/vgpybrDJ4u— Karen Pence (@SecondLady) December 18, 2017
The page that contained the error correctly links to a summary of the document, which emphasizes improving U.S. economic standing while deemphasizing climate change as a security threat.
"It's deeply disturbing that when Americans download @POTUS' full National Security Strategy, it links to a tweet SMH," Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Ill., tweeted, using an abbreviation for "shaking my head."

The full strategy document is available on the White House website, and can be located using a search engine.
The White House press office did not immediately comment on the apparent error or Kelly's criticism.
