The songwriter behind Aerosmith’s 1998 hit “I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing” trolled President Trump on Twitter after he said he misspoke during a press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“I meant to say I do want to miss a thing,” Diane Warren tweeted early Thursday morning.

Her tweet came after another songwriter, Richard Marx, also took a hit at Trump.

Marx, who wrote the 1989 hit song “Right Here Waiting,” said on Wednesday that he also “misspoke.”

“I misspoke. I meant to say I ‘wouldn’t’ be right here waiting for you,” Marx tweeted.

Trump told reporters Tuesday that he misspoke during his widely criticized press conference with Putin in Helsinki on Monday.

The president originally said he didn’t “see any reason why it would be” Russia who interfered in the 2016 election.

The press conference was condemned by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle as an attack on American intelligence agencies.

Trump later backtracked and said he mean to say “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia” who meddled.

The remarks came days after special counsel Robert Mueller handed down indictments to 12 Russian intelligence officers for allegedly hacking the Democratic National Committee during the election.
