President Donald Trump says his awkwardly capitalized tweets are no mistake.

In a Tuesday afternoon Twitter posting, Trump is delivering the public service announcement about his digital statements.

Coverage of Donald Trump and Twitter on Globalnews.ca:

Spelling errors may be another matter. He misspells “pore” in the tweet.

In a tweet, they corrected the president’s mistake, and even took a shot at his hair.

Moments after sending that message, Trump corrected another Tuesday posting critical of his favourite political punching bag β€” the press.
