The White House Just Misspelled 'United States' in a Tweet Touting the Economy, and People Can't Even

The White House released a statement on Friday touting good economic news that the American economy grew by 4.1 percent in the second quarter of 2018. Whoever posted the meme on Twitter misspelled 'United States' in bold and ALL CAPS while quoting President Donald Trump.

The tweet has since been deleted, which is a violation of the Presidential Records Act.

"If economic growth continues at this pace, THE UNITED SATES [sic] ECONOMY WILL DOUBLE IN SIZE more than 10 years faster than it would have under President Bush or President Obama," the White House said in a statement, quoting Trump.

Trump's personal tweets are renowned for their typographical errors and atrocious grammar, though this sort of error coming from the White House is, as Trump would say, "sad!"

And again, tweets are official government records, so the White House's deletion only digs the hole deeper.

Trump really does have "the best people" and "the best words" were among some of the responses on Twitter.

"Not the Onion." Satirists must really be struggling these days.

"Embarrassing" pretty much sums it up.

"Sates," one person observed, is an anagram of "asset." Hmmm...

Twitter's relentless trolling continued with people pledging allegiance to the "United Sates" and looking for a way off this planet.


And what about the "mistakes we are not seeing?" Fair point.

"The symbolism" of Trump's chaotic administration is... well it speaks for itself.

The original tweet was up for three and a half hours before the White House realized its mistake.
