Donald Trump hosted a ‘social media summit’ at the White House and one of the highlights were displays of his own tweets, blown up and printed out including his infamous ‘Covfefe’ error.

In a bizarre move, the White House decided to cherry pick some of the US president’s tweets for showcasing, including one that reads:

Thanks – many are saying I’m the best 140 character writer in the world. It’s easy when it’s fun.

Another read:

Who can figure out the true meaning of “covfefe” ??? Enjoy!

The White House also printed out various definitions of words, with one spelled wrong and another misclassified as a verb when it’s actually a noun.

In the explanation of “Doxing,” the word “publicly” was spelt “publically” and the noun “Demonetization” was classified as a verb.

People online had lots of fun with the posters

The president accused technology companies of anti-conservative bias, saying: "Today I'm directing my administration to explore all regulatory and legislative solutions to protect free speech and the free speech rights of all Americans," Trump said, before praising Sen.

We have terrible bias. We have censorship like no one has any understanding, nobody can believe. They're playing with a lot of minds and they're playing unfairly.

Senator Hawley added:

Google, Facebook, Twitter, they've gotten these special deals from government. They've gotten a special giveaway from government. They're treated unlike anybody else. If they want to keep their special deal here's the bargain. They have to quit discriminating against conservatives.
