I can't imagine human exploration on mars without launching from the moon. so much power is used up leaving earth, you'd need the moon to replenish supplies, or even use a new vehicle.
so it makes sense that going to the moon is a step to going to mars. Donald Trump screwed up in his tweet, not because he thinks the moon and mars are the same thing, but because going to the moon is important.
