President Donald Trump made a typo late Tuesday afternoon. And since that time, it’s become a meme.

As BuzzFeed News reported, Trump sent out a tweet that read, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.”

Trump never fixed the typo in a new tweet. Instead, he released a follow-up tweet encouraging Twitter members to offer their own definition.

According to CNN, Trump’s tweet and typo are just more signs of him presenting an authentic image of himself.

“The tweets represent Trump at his most authentic and defiant, lashing out when he feels he is under attack, and appeared to reflect a belief that only he, and not his staff, is qualified to speak in his own defense,” according to CNN.

But the internet can do nothing but speculate about the word.

Twitter did its best to figure it out.

But now the tweet might be peaking in popularity.

Celebrities also joined in on the joking, according to USA Today.

As for what it means, we may never know.
