Donald Trump mocked for ‘unpresidented’ tweet lambasting China for ‘stealing’ US Navy drone: Shanghaiist

So, China’s navy seized an unmanned underwater vehicle belong to the United States navy in the South China Sea, and what does one do as president-elect of the United States? Donald Trump, as he usually does, took to Twitter on Saturday but had to delete his tweet when he found it going viral for all the wrong reasons.”China steals United States Navy research drone in international waters – rips it out of water and takes it to China in unpresidented [sic] act,” wrote the property tycoon, apparently without consulting his spellcheck.Trump did not delete the tweet until an hour later, replacing it with a new post that included a correct spelling of the word ‘unprecedented’. By then, however, #unpresidented had become the top trending topic on Twitter as critics skewered the soon-to-be 45th president of the United States for the unintentionally punny misspelling.
