It's unclear if the tickets will be recalled or reissued by the US House Sergeant at Arms, which is responsible for the distribution of the tickets.
This, however, isn't the first or possibly the last time that a spelling error may pop up as the Trump administration has been riddled with misspellings in the past. The White House previously misspelled UK Prime Minister Theresa May's name three different times in an memo detailing the press schedule during for her visit to the US. Rather than Theresa, the memo spelled her name as "Teresa."
In another incident, Trump referred to Chinese President Xi Jinping at the president of the "Republic of China," which happens to be the title of Taiwan.
