Tweet That: #covfefe signals @realDonaldTrump is back

Tweet That: #covfefe signals @realDonaldTrump is back

Trump tweeted shortly before 1 a.m. that "Despite the constant negative press covfefe". After deleting the tweet, Trump, sphinx-like, wrote, "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"???".

Even Merriam-Webster dictionary regretted its decision to check Twitter and posted "Wakes up". From the undivided attention his hands got (much thanks to Melania Trump) to the memes with Pope Francis, the harvest was definitely bountiful for the Internet meme-makers recently. Checks Twitter.Uh.Lookups fo.Regrets Checking Twitter.

Fresh off Trump's first official trip overseas, his administration is looking for ways to respond more aggressively to allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and revelations of possible ties between Trump's campaign and Moscow.

The yet-to-be-properly-defined word also made its way into the Urban Dictionary, a website that collates online word submissions.

During an off-camera briefing with reporters, White House press secretary Sean Spicer only said, "The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant".




He deleted it at 5.50 a.m., and by then, it was re-tweeted more than 100,000 times, making it the career best for Mr. Trump who routinely announces policy and snipes at critics at home and overseas in fewer than 140 characters.

A figure named Covfefe the Strong used a new Twitter account to announce, "I have been summoned to this world".

The Republican president has said using Twitter helps him speak directly to Americans and bypass the media, which he has long criticized.

Most of the thousands who replied to the president's tweet joked about the indecipherable word, calling it the nuclear code or the Secret Service handle for presidential assistant Steve Bannon.

During Trump's nine-day trip overseas, there was a concerted White House effort to keep wayward tweets from distracting from the presidential images, according to two people with knowledge of the administration's plans but not authorized to discuss them publicly.
