"Despite the constant negative press covfefe," the tweet read.

Trump himself seemingly joined those on social media making light of the word on Wednesday, following up with another tweet several hours later reading, "Who can figure out the true meaning of 'covfefe' ??? Enjoy!"

White House press secretary Sean Spicer gave a cryptic answer when asked about the made-up word at his daily press briefing on Wednesday, saying that only "the president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant" by the tweet.
