LOOK! Trump misspells Philippines!

Ahead of his first visit to the country on Sunday as head of state, Trump misspelled the Philippines on his Twitter account (@realDonaldTrump)

 “Will be doing a joint press conference in Hanoi, Vietnam then heading for final destination of trip, the Phillipines,” Trump posted at 7:35 a.m.

Trump attended the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation in Vietnam. He is expected to arrive later today in the Philippines for the 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) summit, the last leg of his 12-day trip to Asia.

As of writing, the error has yet to be corrected.

Trump’s misspelling comes just days after Asean organizers themselves drew flak for committing the same mistake on the tarpaulins set up to welcome the 7,000 summit delegates.

The tarps carrying the word “Philppines” have since been taken down. While organizers said they are investigating the gaffe, they noted that these were neither distributed by the Presidential Communications and Operations Office, the Philippine Information Agency nor by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority.
