Donald Trump ridiculed after calling Prince Charles 'The Prince of Whales'

US President Donald Trump has once again become the focus of attention online due to one of his latest tweet, though probably not the way the POTUS might've intended.

President Donald Trump, who is prone to typos and misspellings on his social media account, botched the spelling of Prince Charles' official title Thursday, referring to him as the "Prince of Whales", and invoking not royalty but something more akin to Moby Dick or Shamu.

And even though the spelling mistake was swiftly corrected, many amused netizens seemed reluctant to just let this blunder slide.

Frankly, I'd much rather meet with the Prince of Whales than the Prince of Wales.

Trump's tweets were an apparent response to criticism of comments he made on Sunday that he would accept information from a foreign government that was damaging to an election opponent, without reporting it to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "If I thought there was something wrong, I'd go maybe to the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

Trump later deleted the tweet and replaced it with one that spelled Wales correctly.

"With that being said, my full answer is rarely played out by the Fake News Media".

Britain's Charles, Prince of Wales, Britain's Queen Elizabeth, U.S. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump participate in an event to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, in Portsmouth, Britain, June 5, 2019.

"If somebody called from a country - Norway - we have information on your opponent, oh, I think I'd want to hear it".

When he was President-elect in 2016, he misspelled unprecedented in the tweet: 'China steals United States Navy research drone in global waters - rips it out of water and takes it to China in unpresidented act'.
