What exactly is covfefe?
No, it’s not a rare and exotic blend of coffee – it’s the typo made by Donald Trump that has set Twitter alight overnight.
Late on Monday night, the US President predictably attempted to attack the press once more on his favourite channel of communication – but it didn’t quite go to plan.
‘Despite the constant negative press covfefe’, he wrote on Twitter.
Presumably, that last word was meant to be ‘coverage’ – although the spelling mistake, which wasn’t deleted until Tuesday morning, wasn’t going to be forgotten any time soon.
It quickly became the top global trend on Twitter, and people have been having fun at The Donald’s expense. Lots of fun.
Some suggested that it’s the all powerful word to trigger those mysterious orbs.

Has he just revealed the nuclear codes?
This guy will be guided on the roads by the all powerful Covfefe.

Or is he a viking warrior, descended to Earth to save our souls?
I have been summoned to this world. I know not why.

President Trump is yet to clarify what he meant, but perhaps the tweet came at the end of a long and stressful day – in which he hit back at Angela Merkel for claiming that the US could no longer be considered a reliable ally.
He wrote on Twitter: ‘We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on NATO & military. Very bad for US. This will change.’

Donald Trump has now woken up, and he’s now deleted the original and now iconic Covfefe tweet. In its place, he’s given this mysterious reply – and we’re none the wiser as to what it actually means.
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!

Perhaps he needs to sit down and enjoy a hot cup of Covfefe?
