Merriam-Webster Mocks Trump for Typo

Donald Trump is being mocked for his unique command of the English language on Twitter.

The Hill reports:

The Merriam-Webster online dictionary mocked President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday for misspelling “unprecedented” in a tweet aimed at China.

“Good morning! The #WordOfTheDay is…not ‘unpresidented’. We don’t enter that word. That’s a new one,” read a tweet from the dictionary company, which included a link to the entry for the word “Huh.”

Good morning! The #WordOfTheDay is…not ‘unpresidented’. We don’t enter that word. That’s a new one. https://t.co/BJ45AtMNu4

Trump made the typo early Saturday morning in a tweet blasting China for seizing an unmanned U.S. Navy vessel, calling the act “unpresidented.”

He later deleted the tweet and posted a new one with the word spelled correctly.

China steals United States Navy research drone in international waters – rips it out of water and takes it to China in unprecedented act.
