WASHINGTON — Twitter exploded with memes and gifs early Wednesday morning when President Trump sent out a mysterious and confusing tweet — one he later deleted and responded to.

Trump said, just after midnight, “despite the constant negative press covfefe”


What exactly does that mean? Twitter went crazy with users trying to figure out what it stands for — and why it wasn’t deleted after an hour or more of being up.

Even Merriam-Webster Dictionary had something to say about it.

Well, it was eventually deleted — more than six hours later.

So what did the president mean?

Well, it seems that’s something he’d rather us sort out.
