Donald Trump has been ridiculed after boasting about his writing skills in a tweet - which contained spelling mistakes.

Donald Trump originally tweeted, "After having written many bestselling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly likes to pour over my tweets looking for a mistake".

Some believe the tweet was a textbook case of trolling - but this theory fails to explain why Trump deleted the original tweet.

J.K. Rowling, an award-winning author with many titles to her name spotted the error and offered up a correction. and plenty of laughter.

President Trump is prone to misspellings in his tweets, intentionally or unintentionally drawing media attention to them, and his most recent mix-up has attracted the attention of a famous author, according to Business Insider.

Following the incident, the president deleted the tweet and wrote another one correcting the mistake.
