Among the many casualties of Washington’s protocols in the Trump era has been a lack of rigour to the accuracy of the printed word – whether it’s the President’s typo-filled tweets or the White House’s error-prone news releases.
“Special Council is told to find crimes, wether crimes exist or not,” Mr Trump wrote on Twitter earlier this week to start off a posting in which he misspelled “counsel” three times and had five errors in the span of 280 characters.
As journalists and others poked fun at the mistakes, the President quickly deleted the tweet and posted an edited version. He successfully changed “wether” to “whether” and eliminated an inadvertent repeat of the word “the” – but he failed to correct the three inaccurate references to the title of his nemesis, Robert Mueller.
“If Trump directs Rosenstein to fire the special ‘council,’ I think we might be ok folks,” cracked former US attorney Preet Bharara of New York, whom Mr Trump fired last summer, referring to deputy attorney general Rod J Rosenstein.
Amid all the chaos in the White House – including West Wing personnel drama, the Stormy Daniels scandal and Mr Mueller’s Russia investigation, some wayward spellings and inaccurate honorifics might seem minor. But the constant small mistakes – which have dogged the Trump White House since the President’s official Inauguration Day poster boasted that “no challenge is to great” – have become, critics say, symbolic of the larger problems with Mr Trump’s management style, in particular his lack of attention to detail and the carelessness with which he makes policy decisions.
