Trump makes a splash with 'Prince of Whales' Twitter gaffe

Trump mocked for 'Prince of Whales' tweet

President Trump regularly tweets about the "fake news media", but it seems he's shared a bit of fake news himself with a recent royal blunder.

The heir to the throne, who is, in fact, the Prince of Wales, met President Trump during his state visit to the United Kingdom earlier this month.

Mr Trump took to Twitter after revealing in an interview with ABC news that he would take information about a political rival from a foreign government if it was offered to him, without reporting it to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"I meet and talk to "foreign governments" every day".

Or does he literally believe that Charles is the heir to the throne of a species of large aquatic mammals? Should I immediately call the Federal Bureau of Investigation about these calls and meetings?

Is he blissfully unaware that there's a country in the United Kingdom called Wales? "If we are to secure justice and ensure this never happens again, we must impeach him".

Thankfully, the tweet was later deleted and replaced by one containing the correct spelling.

Apparently he was a little confused about what exactly Charles is prince of, tweeting that he met with "the Prince of Whales" while in the UK.

Scroll through to see reactions to Trump's "Prince of Whales" tweet.

"We were going to have a 15-minute chat and it turned out to be an hour-and-a-half and he did most of the talking - and he is really into climate change and I think that's great", Trump said of the visit in an interview last week.

He suggested that he wouldn't necessarily report the offer or the information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation either, all of which is very much illegal under campaign finance law.
