Donald Trump Challenges America to Figure Out the Meaning of 'Covfefe' After Tweet Sweeps Social Media
Trump caused a social media stir when he tweeted the unfamiliar word on Tuesday night
Trump caused a social media stir when he tweeted, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” on Tuesday night. The post remained up for several hours before it was deleted early Wednesday morning and replaced by another one about the faux word.
“Who can figure out the true meaning of “covfefe” ??? Enjoy!” he wrote.
Twitter attempted to figure out the meaning of “covfefe” as the word began trending, with celebrities, journalists and authors weighing in and taking a stab as they attempted to decipher Trump’s now-deleted tweet.
“When they go low, we covfefe,” joked comedian Billy Eichner.
Late night host James Corden added, “I’m gonna try and go back to sleep now. Everyone stay #covfefe.”
Trump has been garnering his fair share of social media scrutiny these days. Recently, the president’s shove of Montenegro Prime Minister Dusko Markovic to get to the front of a group of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) leaders made headlines. While gathering at NATO’s new headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday, a group of members were walking together to get to a meeting. From behind, Trump emerged, pushing Markovic aside, stepping in front of him. The president then smugly straightened his jacket.
