The United States President Donald Trump is once again being trolled for his erratic spelling habit. This time he committed a gaffe while writing about his recent meeting with the "Prince of Whales."

The POTUS was talking about Charles, whom he met last week at World War II commemorations in Britain but accidentally called him “the Prince of Whales” instead of “Wales.”

Trump, who is an enthusiastic user of social media, has around 61 million Twitter followers. The error, which was quickly corrected, prompted a wave of hilarity online, with one Twitter critic asking if Trump had made the mistake "on porpoise."

But his new version did not change another inaccurate reference, this time to the "Queen of England."

Elizabeth II, who hosted Trump at a state dinner in London, is actually queen of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, of which England is only one part. 

Unsurprisingly, some Twitter users started trolling Trump on the micro-blogging site.
