Donald Trump makes embarrassing spelling error in Storm Harvey tweet

Donald Trump's boast of having 'the best words' appears a little hollow

It's a day ending in 'y' so inevitably Donald Trump has come up with an embarrassing faux pas.

The US President, who once boasted of having "the best words," has made a rather basic spelling error while lauding the bravery of rescue workers who've been battling Storm Harvey in Texas.

The southern state has been buffeted by storms for the past week, leaving several dead and thousands displaced. But the storm has now passed and the authorities are beginning to get a grip on the situation.

Trump used his latest Twitter missive to praise these responders for their bravery and resilience, but the gloss was rather taken off his message by an unfortunate spelling mistake.

The President tweeted: "Texas is heeling fast thanks to all of the great men & women who have been working so hard. But still, so much to do. Will be back tomorrow!"

If you can't spot the error, don't worry - apparently you don't need spelling to get into the top jobs, even the most important office in the world.
