On Tuesday night, President Trump tweeted an incomplete thought:
"Despite the constant negative press covfefe," the tweet read. The president didn't say anything else before or afterward, which left social media wondering what this meant.
By morning, the word -- or typo -- "covfefe" was a meme on the site, with the hashtag #covfefe trending:

It's 5:50 am & his tweet is gone. The sun rises &we all walk home in our party clothes.Was it all just a dream? The wind whispered...covfefe
After around six hours, the tweet was deleted -- and minutes later Wednesday morning, Trump spoke out again:
"Who can figure out the true meaning of 'covfefe,'" the president asked, "Enjoy!" A
definition popped up on Urban Dictionary soon after: a typo for "coverage." Whether it's correct, though, is unknown.
