Trump meets the most unusual leader ever, leaving Twitter confused
President Donald Trump hopped on Twitter to once again enlighten the public — this time, about a member of the royal family who can speak to animals.
In an attempt to push back against critics about his lack of transparency with the FBI, the president tweeted that he usually meets and talks to "foreign governments" everyday and rhetorically asked if he should notify the agency of every conversation he has with world leaders. The leader of the free world said that some of the dignitaries he met recently included "the Queen of England (U.K.), the Prince of Whales, the P.M. of the United Kingdom, the P.M. of Ireland, the President of France and the President of Poland."
You read that right. America's self-proclaimed genius said he met with an undersea leader. We're not entirely sure whether he was referring to Jason Momoa, who played Aquaman in the eponymous blockbuster film last year, or Russian President Vladimir Putin, who may have directed a whale to spy in Norwegian waters. One thing's for sure, though: the U.S. president has met many interesting characters.
To be fair, when Trump caught his spelling mistake, he immediately deleted his tweet and reposted with the correct spelling of "Wales."
That unfortunately didn't stop Twitter from roasting him for getting Prince Charles' title wrong.
"The Prince of Wales read the Prince of Whales and caused the Prince to Wail," one person tweeted in response.
The president, who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, has had a history of spelling gaffes. Still, that hasn't stopped him from occasionally pushing forth misleading information. Last Friday, in a follow-up to NASA's claim that it wouldn't be able to land astronauts on the moon unless Congress approved an increase in the Trump administration's budget for the project, Trump took to Twitter to shed light on a little-known "fact."
"For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon - We did that 50 years ago," he tweeted. "They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!"
Yes, you read that right again. The president thinks the moon is part of Mars. At this point, we can only hope that Trump opens our eyes with more of these "Snapple Facts."
