An “unpresidented” Donald Trump tweet typo gained a lot of attention over the weekend after the president-elect took to Twitter about China's seizure of an underwater drone. It was his third misuse or misspelling in a matter of weeks, suggesting he needs an editor or at least a dictionary.

“China steals United States Navy research drone in international waters – rips it out of water and takes it to China in unpresidented act,” he tweeted the day after the Pentagon made the same announcement.

It’s safe to say Trump meant to use the term “unprecedented,” which many news media switched to after the tweet was corrected.

It wasn’t the first time Trump made a tweeting typo. Most recently, he took to Twitter to ask the White House why they would “waite” so long to investigate reports that accused Russia of tampering with the presidential election, noted The Daily News.

Last week, Trump made another typo when he said it’s “rediculous” that people would think he would continue to work on his reality TV show after the Inauguration.

Trump’s carelessness on Twitter has his army of instant critics questioning if he's fit he is to be the country’s next commander-in-chief is he can't spell.

Following the recent typo, Rep. Mark Takano, D-Calif., asked a “select committee” to investigate whether Trump really understands “foreign policy and homophones,” noted the Washington Examiner.

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., took to Twitter to criticize the president-elect as well.

“This is madness. A 7:30am Saturday escalation of diplomatic crisis w China via Twitter, w misspelling,” read the tweet.

Olivia Nuzzi, a political reporter for the Daily Beast, called Trump out for how long it took him to realize that he had made a horrible typo.

“It took the president elect nearly an hour and a half to learn to spell ‘unprecedented,’” she wrote in a tweet. “’Unpresidented’ isn’t a word but if it was, I think I know what it would mean.”

There were others who took to twitter to give their thoughts on Trump’s recent social media hiccups.
