Heel or heal? Donald Trump mocked on Twitter for typo-filled tweets

New Delhi, Hindustan Times
Not once, but twice US President Donald Trump managed to put his foot (heel and all) in his mouth on Twitter in a single day, for a single tweet.
After his infamous ‘covfefe’ mishap, the president once again left his followers amused by tweeting about the protests in Boston on Saturday and misspelling the word ‘heal’ as ‘heel’ in four tweets.
Misspellings, and deletions, have been common for Trump on Twitter.
Earlier in May, the president had tweeted: “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.” And that was that. It left many of his 36 million followers on Twitter baffled and entertained.
The tweet remained active on Trump’s account without comment or clarification and was deleted the following morning, only to be replaced by: “Who can figure out the true meaning of ‘covfefe’ ??? Enjoy!”
This time, however, the president was quick to delete the incorrect tweets, before posting the one with the proper spelling. But by the time he fixed his mistake, it was too late and many users had already saved screenshots of the previous versions.

😈 heel (a contemptible person)
🙋♂️ he'll (he will)
When the president finally found the right keys to tap, it was made clear what he was meaning to say all this while.
Our great country has been divided for decades. Sometimes you need protest in order to heal, & we will heal, & be stronger than ever before!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 19, 2017
