    The apparent misspelling is merely the latest such social media gaffe coming from Trump’s social media presence.

    US President Donald Trump, who has often managed to amuse social media with his Twitter gaffes such as the infamous "covfefe", has now upped his game further with one of his latest tweets misspelling his very own surname.

    Describing his meeting with Google CEO Sindar Pichai in the Oval Office, Trump wrote that the things the former told him “sounded good until I watched Kevin Cernekee, a Google engineer, say terrible things about what they did in 2016 and that they want to “Make sure that Trump losses (sic!) in 2020.”

    ​"Lou Dobbs stated that this is a fraud on the American public. Peter Schweizer stated with certainty that they suppressed negative stories on Hillary Clinton, and boosted negative stories on Donald Ttump. All very illegal. We are watching Google very closely!” the president concluded.

    It probably comes as no surprise that this gaffe was soon noticed by keen-eyed social media users, many of whom seized on the opportunity to make fun of the US head of state.

    Some were also quick to recall how the president recently misstated the location of a deadly mass shooting that took place in the state of Ohio this weekend.

    This, however, was hardly the first time Trump left the public in stitches thanks to the spelling mistakes in his tweets that almost border on the creative, with one of the latest episodes involving him describing a member of the British royal family as the "Prince of Whales".

    And his daughter Ivanka committed a similar blunder when she congratulated Boris Johnson via Twitter on "becoming the next Prime Minister of United Kingston".
