LOOK: Nahawa na sa mali! Trump tweets wrong spelling of Philippines

Nov 12, 2017 @ 16:43

It’s not just government-produced posters for the ASEAN Summit that bear the wrong spelling of the Philippines.

No less than United States President Donald Trump got the country’s name wrong in a tweet.

On Sunday (November 12), Trump tweeted: “Will be doing a joint press conference in Hanoi, Vietnam then heading for the final destination of the trip, the Phillipines.”

Trump is set to arrive in Manila later in tje day for the ASEAN Summit.

His boo-boo was the second time the Philippines was misspelled in less than a week.

The administration recently drew flak over welcome posters for ASEAN delegates which spelled the country’s name as “Philppines.”

Officials say the posters have been removed and replaced.
