Donald Trump has been mocked after calling Wales ‘Whales’ in a tweet.
The US President posted the tweet this afternoon in which he spoke about meeting “the Prince of Whales” on his recent trip to London.
“I meet and talk to ‘foreign governments’ every day. I just met with the Queen of England (U.K.), the Prince of Whales, the P.M. of the United Kingdom, the P.M. of Ireland, the President of France and the President of Poland. We talked about ‘Everything!'” Trump tweeted.
The tweet was defending an interview with ABC News in which he said he would be open to accepting information on election opponents from Russia or other foreign governments.
He deleted and reposted the tweet with the correct spelling an hour later.
It was too late however to stop the misspelling trending on the microblogging site from, as users made fun of the mistake.

“When I met with the Prince of Whales, he said that as president, it was my life’s porpoise to build the wall. I told him wait till you sea it.”

Good grief. The Prince of “Whales.” Narwhal, Beluga, or Humpback? Trump is an international embarrassment. This is going to be headline news in the UK, and he will be (rightly) ruthlessly mocked for it. pic.twitter.com/kBK53hVdtk
