Trump calls for ‘boarder security’ instead of ‘border security’

This isn't the first time he's made this typo.

President Donald Trump misspelled the word “border” in a tweet on Monday morning where he was blasting Democrats for not agreeing with his desire to increase security along the country’s southern border.

Instead of writing “border security,” the president typed “boarder security”–leading to numerous responses. Last week the president wrote “smocking” instead of “smoking” in a tweet, which also led to people dunking on him.

“Anytime you hear a Democrat saying that you can have good Boarder Security without a Wall, write them off as just another politician following the party line. Time for us to save billions of dollars a year and have, at the same time, far greater safety and control!” Trump wrote early Monday.

This isn’t the first time the president has misspelled “border” when talking about his wall.

Earlier this month, Trump wrote “boarder security” when blasting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). He even spelled “border” correctly in the tweet, before misspelling it later on.

“Arizona, together with our Military and Border Patrol, is bracing for a massive surge at a NON-WALLED area. WE WILL NOT LET THEM THROUGH. Big danger. Nancy and Chuck must approve Boarder Security and the Wall!” he wrote on Dec. 7.

While his misspelling of “border” isn’t new, Twitter had a field day with what they believed “boarder security” really was.

Others just mocked the president for yet another typo.
