Donald Trump boasts of meeting with Prince of 'Whales'

Was the President simply a victim of autocorrect?

Or does he literally believe that Charles is the heir to the throne of a species of enormous aquatic mammals?

President Donald Trump is making a splash on social media after referring to Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, as the "Prince of Whales". For those not familiar with the geography of the United Kingdom, Wales is a small country of three million people on England's western border.

Referring to his recent United Kingdom state visit, the president initially wrote on Twitter: "I meet and talk to "foreign governments" every day".

I guess we'll never know.

'We talked about "Everything!" Should I immediately call the Federal Bureau of Investigation about these calls and meetings?

The tweet was defending an interview with ABC News in which he said he would be open to accepting information on election opponents from Russian Federation or other foreign governments.

To be fair, he may have a point. "'Prince of Whales' is a good one", MSNBC's Kyle Griffin wrote.

Trump, now ranked by the website friendorfollow.com as having the 12th most popular Twitter account in the world with some 61 million followers, quickly corrected the original tweet.

He suggested that he wouldn't necessarily report the offer or the information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation either, all of which is very much illegal under campaign finance law.

Perhaps if he's dealing with literal cetaceans, it won't become a problem for him anyway.
