HANOI, Vietnam (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Spell ‘Mississippi.’ Oh, that’s easy. M-i double s-i double s-i double p-i. But Philippines is litte bit harder to spell. Even if you are President of the United States.
In a tweet announcing a press conference in Hanoi, Vietnam and the upcoming last leg of his trip to Asia, Donald Trump misspelled ‘Philippines, doubling the ‘l’ and singling the ‘p.’
When The Adobo Chronicles caught up with Trump on board Air Force One, we asked him to comment about his misspelling. His response:
”I sincerely apologize to the Phillies!”
Upon hearing of Trump’s apology, one Filipino netizen protested. He happens to be a solid Lakers fan.
