Trump's tweeted typo covfefe becoming vanity license plates

Spicer was replying to a question thrown at him during a media meeting later in the day asking why the tweet remained uncorrected for so long on Trump's personal @realDonaldTrump account.

"I will be announcing my decision on the Paris Accord over the next few days". On May 31, President Trump took to Twitter to discuss only what we can assume was something about "fake news", but instead he created a new word thanks to a sleepy typo.

Was it tweetus incompletus?

And what was Trump trying to say, anyway?

"The Twitterverse greeted covfefe's arrival with unfettered rapture", the host said.

Donald Trump's "covfefe" tweet was already an embarrassment.

"It has everything: Russian entanglements, spray tans, creepy handshakes, surprise trade wars". Silicon Valley executive Andrew Crow went so far as to change his last name on Twitter to "Covfefe". Jimmy Kimmel tweeted a response, saying "What makes me sad is that I know I'll never write anything funnier than #covfefe".

Trump's "covfefe" message drew renewed attention to his prolific Twitter habit. The organisation said in a letter to senators in March that it had told the Trump team that it needs to "capture and preserve all tweets that the President posts... including those that are subsequently deleted".

"People in covfefe houses shouldn't throw covfefe", the former first lady tweeted on Wednesday evening.

Earlier on Wednesday, Clinton - who refused to let such a good opportunity to mock her formal presidential candidate rival - also cracked a joke about the misspelled tweet while speaking at the Code Conference in Los Angeles.
