‘PM of United Kingston’: Ivanka Trump congratulates BoJo in geographically-challenged tweet
Donald Trump’s daughter took to Twitter on Tuesday to comment on Boris Johnson’s selection as the head of the Conservative Party, making him the UK’s next prime minister. Her note of congratulations, however, suffered from a small typo – some might even say a Freudian slip.
“Congratulations @BorisJohnson on becoming the next Prime Minister of the United Kingston,” Ivanka tweeted.
The geographically-challenged message was quickly deleted – but not before the inevitable pile-on by the Twitterati.
Still trying to get my head round the fact Boris really is about to become Prime Minister of the United Kingston.— (((Dan Hodges))) (@DPJHodges) July 23, 2019
Twitter gaffes appear to run in the Trump family. The US president has made headlines with some of his more memorable typos, including his complaint about “negative press covfefe” and how he is “honered” to serve the American people.
