During a press briefing today, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that a small group of people understand what Donald Trump meant when he posted a strange tweet at midnight on Wednesday.
Shortly after midnight on May 31st, Donald Trump tweeted, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.” There was no end to the tweet. Trump clearly meant to write “coverage” and inadvertently sent the tweet before it was finished, but the incomplete tweet subsequently stayed on Trump’s account for several hours before being deleted.
During a press briefing today, Sean Spicer was asked if Americans should be concerned over the fact that the president sent an incomprehensible tweet at 12:06 in the morning and that it remained on his profile for so long. Spicer said, “No.”
Members of the press then asked Spicer what Trump meant by the tweet. Spicer said, “The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant.”
Spicer’s statement caused members of the media to laugh, and the White House press secretary quickly moved on.
Earlier today, President Donald Trump seemed to revel in the fact that people were confused about the covfefe tweet, rather than simply saying that it was a typo. Trump tweeted, “Who can figure out the true meaning of “covfefe” ??? Enjoy!”
