Trump insists he's the best writer. Here are 11 of his most embarrassing tweets

Whatever your views on the president of the United States of America, there's one thing we can all agree on - the man isn't Shakespeare.

Yesterday, however, in a now deleted tweet, he insisted that he prided himself on his 'ability to write'. The tweet, however, included a typo.

He said that the media 'pour over' his tweets to find mistakes, instead of 'pore over' his tweets. Oh, the irony.

The tweet has since been posted with the correct spelling.


Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
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. I capitalize certain words only for emphasis, not b/c they should be capitalized!

Many were quick to pick up on the gaffe, particularly JK Rowling, who simply tweeted:


J.K. Rowling

@jk_rowling
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha *draws breath* hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

In light of this latest gaffe, we've compiled the most heinous of the president's crimes against grammar and spelling - and needless to say, the list isn't short.

1. 'Covfefe'.
It's still a mystery what Trump was trying to say when he tweeted this now infamous tweet, however, it seems to have been a mangled attempt at writing 'coverage'. Instead, on 31 May, at 12:06am, Trump tweeted the incomprehensible:

"Despite the negative press covfefe."

The tweet then wasn't deleted for a full six hours, during which time Twitter users ran riot.


2. The possibility of lasting 'peach'.
In a press statement about his trip to Israel, the White House communications team issued a statement about Trump's aim to "promote the possibility of lasting peach" in the region.

Yes, you read that correctly.


3. 'Loose' vs 'lose'.
During his presidential campaign, Trump tweeted that Ted Cruz would 'loose' big to Hillary Clinton.

Come on chaps, this is schoolboy stuff!


4. 'Tapp my phones'.
Ah the classic 'tap' vs 'tapp' error. Who among us hasn't made this mistake?

Amazingly, the tweet still hasn't been deleted.



5. 'Teresa' not 'Theresa' May.
In January, the White House misspelled Prime Minister Theresa May's name three times in the official schedule of her visit to the United States.

To make things worse, 'Teresa May' is the name of a porn star.

Ouch.


6. 'Here by' vs 'Hereby'.
Trump struggled to spell 'hereby' twice in March, spelling it 'hear by' in on tweet, then quickly correcting himself with another error, 'hearby'.

Ironically, and awkwardly for the president, the tweets sandwiched a tweet about education reform.


7. Honered to serve.
Oops, well that's just awkward. But, it's always best to start in the way you mean to go on, right?


8. 'Too' vs 'to'.
Come on guys, this is schoolboy stuff!



9. 'Heel' vs 'heal'.
In a tweet issued in August 2017, Trump tweeted that the country needed to 'heel' its divisions - twice.


10. 'There' and 'their'.
Yes, we know this one's tricky. But in early morning tweets in August 2017 about Afghanistan, the president mixed up 'their' and 'there' as well as 'too' and 'to' in the same now-deleted tweet:

"The Fake News is now complaining about my different types of back to back speeches. Well, their was Afghanistan (somber), the big Rally…..”

...(enthusiastic, dynamic and fun) and the American Legion – V.A. (respectful and strong).

To bad the Dems have no one who can change tones!"


Needless to say, Twitter users were quick to pick up on the error.


11. 'Unpresidented' vs 'Unprecedented'.
In December 2016, Trump tweeted:

"China steals United States Navy research drone in international waters – rips it out of water and takes it to China in unpresidented act."

The misspelling caused such a stir that The Guardian named 'unpresidented' the word of the year.

Amazingly, the tweet was published for over an hour before being deleted by Trump's staff, reports People.

Compared to Trump, Bush looks like the most compassionate, intelligent POTUS in history.

I'd love to see him back in The White House.

Indeed. Bush was merely a gateway idiot. Look what's oozed in after him.

If given the chance, I'd sit down and have dinner with Bush - he'd be fascinating to talk to.

Trump: you could not pay me enough money to be in the same room as that "man".

I don't think i'd go that far but i could exist in my skin in the same room as Bush. It would simply crawl off and leave if i tried to ambulate it near ?Trump.

Thing is, as far as mass-murderers go, Bush was at least funny. Trump is straight up horrifying.

I'm no fan, but at least Bush would have some interesting stories.

Trump would talk about himself, money, and nothing else.

I couldn't imagine a more boring individual.
