Trump tweets Fox News chyron error: 'West Saved by the Blood of Patriarchs'

Fox News made a chyron error on Thursday that is getting some mockery on social media after President Trump retweeted the video of it to his 33.4 million followers.  

"West Saved by the Blood of Patriarchs," read the Fox graphic as President Trump spoke during a speech in Poland. 

Trump actually stated: "The West was saved with the blood of patriots," per a White House transcript.

"The memories of those who perished in the Warsaw Uprising cry out across the decades, and few are clearer than the memories of those who died to build and defend the Jerusalem Avenue crossing," Trump said in Warsaw on Thursday. 

"Those heroes remind us that the West was saved with the blood of patriots; that each generation must rise up and play their part in its defense, and that every foot of ground, and every last inch of civilization, is worth defending with your life," he added.

Chryon writers are tasked in live speech coverage situations with supplying verbatim quotes of a speaker in real-time, leading to occasional mistakes.
