Drivers in 21 states have claimed ‘covfefe’ license plates
Drivers in at least 21 states have claimed “covfefe” vanity license plates after President Trump’s misspelled late-night tweet earlier this week, according to CNN.
In Nebraska, the “covfefe” plate was claimed just hours after Trump’s tweet.

CNN reports that the plate is not available in Texas but is available in several states, including New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Trump’s tweet Wednesday, which was eventually deleted, quickly trended on Twitter and became a viral joke. Trump later appeared to make light of the error, asking what his followers thought it meant.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday offered a cryptic explanation for the tweet, saying “the president and a small group of people know exactly what he want.”
Others joined in joking about the word, with popular mobile game Words With Friends adding “covfefe” to its dictionary, defining it as “when autocorrect fails you at 3 am.”
