President Trump in a tweet on Sunday touted the Defense secretary’s comments about the ceasefire in Syria but misspelled Mark Esper’s name.
“Mark Esperanto, Secretary of Defense, ‘The ceasefire is holding up very nicely. There are some minor skirmishes that have ended quickly. New areas being resettled with the Kurds,’” Trump wrote on his Twitter page.
“USA soldiers are not in combat or ceasefire zones. We have secured the Oil. Bringing soldiers home!” he continued.
About two hours later, the original tweet was deleted and the president posted a new one with the correct spelling of Esper’s name and the same comment.
