WH aides intentionally compose Trump tweets with grammatical mistakes: report

White House staffers who sometimes compose President Trump’s tweets intentionally include grammatical errors to mirror the president’s style, The Boston Globe reported Monday.

The Globe, citing two people familiar with the process, reported that staffers will use hallmarks of Trump’s own manner of tweeting, such as unnecessarily capitalized words and fragmented sentences.

Staff members reportedly do not intentionally misspell words or names.

It is generally known that Trump does not write all of his own tweets.

A White House spokesman declined to comment to the Globe for the story.

Trump’s tweets tend to include typos from time to time, with some more egregious than others. Tweets that include misspelled words are usually deleted and replaced with a corrected message. 

Twitter users were quick to mock the president on Saturday when he misspelled his wife’s name upon her return from the hospital.

“Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House. Melanie is feeling and doing really well,” Trump tweeted, before deleting it and correcting it to Melania.
