Twitter had a 'whale' of a time with Trump's typo

Donald Trump lashed out at the 'fake media' in his tweets Donald Trump lashed out at the 'fake media' in his tweets

"With that being said, my full answer is rarely played by the Fake News Media". Because Prince Charles is the Prince of Wales-a title given to the U.K.'s heir apparent, referencing the region of Wales-and not, in fact, the prince of large sea mammals.

Yesterday, Donald Trump faced significant backlash after saying in an interview that he'd likely accept covert information on his political opponents, if it were offered to him by a foreign government.

Also, unless he has an in with Aquaman's royal family, Trump is nearly certainly referring to the Prince of Wales, not the Prince of "Whales".

'I meet and talk to "foreign governments" every day, ' his tweet read.

Is he blissfully unaware that there's a country in the United Kingdom called Wales?

Modi to avoid Pakistani airspace despite getting permission
Pakistan had on Monday decided in principle to let Prime Minister Narendra Modi fly over its airspace to Bishkek . Islamabad also captured one of the Indian pilots but released him to defuse the impending crisis.

Trump defended his comments with a specious hypothetical that, just because he meets with "foreign governments" all the time, should he "call the Federal Bureau of Investigation about these calls and meetings?" How ridiculous! I would never be trusted again.

Trump subsequently deleted his tweet and corrected his error.

Before long, "Prince of Whales" was the number one Twitter trend in the UK.

Scroll through to see reactions to Trump's "Prince of Whales" tweet.

The President was insisting with his post that he wouldn't report damaging information passed to him by a foreign government to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but failure to report attempted interference in a USA election is illegal under campaign finance law.
