U.S. President Donald Trump has famously used Twitter as a tool to boast about his accomplishments, attack his enemies and peddle misinformation.
"Despite the constant negative press covfefe", read the USA leader's short tweet sent early Wednesday.
The original message, which seemed to have been the start of a Trump complaint about media coverage, soon became a top trend on Twitter.
The president's tweet had more than 100,000 retweets. And he's attempting a recovery with the following tweet, asking his followers to find the "true meaning of "covfefe". With him running his presidential campaign based on proposed policies that he claimed would put "American first", along with him now being embroiled in a dispute with Germany over North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending, some suggested that covfefe could in fact mean "Convey Our Values, Fuck Everyone From Europe".
The full tweet read: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe". It doesn't come up in standard dictionaries, and, although a lot of people thought he meant to say press coverage, a few people thought he meant press conference.
