In March, U.S. President Donald Trump challenged America’s school system for not meeting the needs of students. “We must fix our education system for our kids to Make America Great Again,” Trump tweeted—one minute after misspelling hereby in a tweet as “hear by” and one minute before misspelling the word again in another tweet as “hearby.”

For those who’ve made a sport out of tracking Trump’s frequent spelling mistakes, it was a banner day.

Here, for the record, is a running collection of Trump’s many spelling errors over the past year, even if a couple might not have come directly from the man himself. Consider it the start of the Donald Trump New American Dictionary.

Donald Trump’s ‘unpresidented’ way of spelling

    • I agree and people are finally and slowly coming to this conclusion. It seems to be unbelievable. I mean he was successful in business so what gives? But this functional illiteracy is quite prevalent in the general population. This is common for people suffering from dyslexia and especially those who also have ADD. They learn to cope and it is their coping mechanisms that sometime go off the rails. Teachers of special education talk about the need for early intervention before damaging coping mechanisms take hold. For Trump, the evidence abounds…..his briefings are limited to a one page, well spaced, with pictures and graphs……his difficulty in using a teleprompter and constant ad libs…..his claim to have never read a book…etc. etc. etc.

  1. In fairness, “judgement” is actually the correct spelling virtually every English speaking country, including Canada. Only the United States uses Webster’s Dictionary (“judgment”). However, in greater fairness Trump was likely unaware of this.

  2. I am more interested in our own Fairy-princess PM’s constant babbling of ridiculous statements ( how about that Thanksgiving zinger, or that Honor Killings shouldn’t be called barabric)
    At least Trump obviously is doing his own writing.
    Can you imagine how much fun the world could have with Justine if he were allowed to spout off his own speeches?

    Seems like an awful lot of the content of this magazine, is in pointing out Trump’s flaws.
    How about equal time for our own bumbling, prancing fool?

    • You are apparently unaware that Justin is popular around the world.

      You Cons need to give it a rest…..
