America’s President Donald Trump tweeted a sweet “welcome home” message regarding First Lady Melania Trump, who was hospitalized this past week with a kidney condition. The First Lady returned to the White House recently after a spell in the hospital where she underwent kidney surgery.
To announce her return home Trump took to Twitter to say that “Melania is feeling and doing really well.” Amazingly, in a now-deleted tweet, Trump managed to spell the name of his wife, who he has been married to since 2005, incorrectly.
The post was deleted and replaced moments later with the typo corrected. “Melanie” was out and “Melania” was in. Screenshots of the original tweet were soon being circulated and ‘Melanie’ soon began to trend.
Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House. Melania is feeling and doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes!

The social media was quick to figure out the mistake in it. Within minutes of the tweet, Twitter came up with funny memes & jokes.
I hope Melanie-gate inspires Trump to get Apple to do something about their out-of-control autocorrect software.

People are joking about Trump misspelling his wife’s name as “Melanie,” but if you look at any keyboard, the letter “e” is right next to “I don’t care how this broad spells her name.”

Alright I’ve said In the past that spelling errors in tweets shouldn’t be the focus…but you gotta spell your own wife’s name correctly. “Melanie” pic.twitter.com/V4WCrgoKcU

Sometimes I think POTUS misspells things just to troll. So we point it out, he deletes his tweet & then we just all “this tweet is unavailable” on our profiles. I don’t really think this. But it has crossed my mind.

I’m glad your wife Melania is back home; but which Melanie from the Spice Girls is feeling and doing well? pic.twitter.com/vvp9C2TXnl

Making wrong spellings is not new for Trump
Melania Trump, 48, returned to the White House after five days at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre, where she was being treated for an unspecified kidney condition.
Though this may by far be the worst, this is definitely not the first time that Donald Trump has tweeted incorrect spellings.
Everyone will remember the hype around “covfefe” when the US President, in a late night tweet, spelled “coverage” incorrectly in May last year. In September, he misspelled “heal” twice before getting it right.
