Twitter had a 'whale' of a time with Trump's typo

14 June 2019 7:45 AM

President Donald Trump spelled the Prince of Wales's name wrong and though he deleted and retweeted it it, Twitter never forgets.

On Thursday, US president, Donald Trump posted a two-part tweet ranting about the 'Fake News Media'.

But he mixed up the word 'whale' and 'Wales'.

I meet and talk to “foreign governments” every day. I just met with the Queen of England (U.K.), the Prince of Whales, the P.M. of the United Kingdom, the P.M. of Ireland, the President of France and the President of Poland. We talked about “Everything!” Should I immediately... the FBI about these calls and meetings? How ridiculous! I would never be trusted again. With that being said, my full answer is rarely played by the Fake News Media. They purposely leave out the part that matters.

The tweet was deleted, corrected and reposted...but not before tens of thousands of Tweeters jumped on the band wagon with hilarity.
