He’s prone to putting his foot in it, and Donald Trump has been left red-faced once again after a tweet boasting about his spelling prowess has spectacularly backfired.

Trolls kicked into action after the supremely confident President issued a tweet, hitting out at those who combed through his words looking for mistakes.

“After having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly likes to pour over my tweets looking for a mistake,” he wrote.

In doing so, the POTUS hilariously made a spelling mistake.

For those who can’t spot it, President Trump should have used the word ‘pore’ instead of ‘pour’.

Needless to say, Twitter had an absolute field day with the typo, with Harry Potter author J.K Rowling just one of many who gleefully pointed out the mistake.


While the POTUS quickly edited the tweet to correct his mistake, it was much too late.
