Donald Trump sent a lot of people – reporters included – scurrying for dictionaries when he posted an odd tweet that used the word “covfefe.”
Here’s what Trump wrote on Twitter in the early morning hours of May 31:
“Despite the constant negative press covfefe”
Yes, that was the full tweet. Trump tweeted it after midnight on the East Coast. See for yourself:
Twitter had a field day.
So what does the word “covfefe” mean? It appears to be a typo. It doesn’t come up in standard dictionaries, and a lot of people thought he meant to say press conference.
Or maybe he meant to say press coverage.
That’s quite a typo if so. Also odd: The fact that the tweet cut off without ending punctuation.
When you type “dictionary covfefe” into Google, Google suggests that maybe you meant to Google the word “coffee.” That’s because “covfefe” doesn’t come up. Anywhere. Except on Donald Trump’s Twitter page.

The Trump covfefe tweet immediately subjected the president to ridicule as thousands of people retweeted it and mocked the president for his odd late night tweet. Trump, of course, has used Twitter as no president before, and it’s not the first time that the president’s tweets have had spelling errors in them. Usually, though, he doesn’t come up with completely new words.
