Just after midnight, President Donald Trump sent out a very odd, short tweet that has many wondering what in the world was he trying to say. In referring to the negative press, he used a word that seemingly no one knows. It has launched thousands of comments and jokes and has left everyone wondering what this new word means.
At 12:06 a.m. Wednesday, President Trump tweeted a strange sentence fragment.
“Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” the tweet read. That was it. It ended abruptly, as if someone stopped him, or he stopped himself, or perhaps he never meant to send it.
No, “covfefe” isn’t a typo, at least, not on the part of The Washington Post.
Within six hours, it had been retweeted more than 127,000 times and “liked” more than 162,000 times — making it one of his most popular tweets in months. By then it had become a massive Internet joke…
Some speculate that Trump abruptly stopped before completing his tweet or that perhaps someone stopped him from finishing his tweet. However, the odd tweet was sent out and tens of thousands of people have like and retweeted it. It has also launched many jokes about what ‘covfefe’ means. If anyone knows what he word means, the world is anxiously waiting.
