Ivanka Trump Makes a Typo Congratulating Boris Johnson on Becoming Prime Minister of 'United Kingston'
Ivanka Trump attempted to congratulate the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and failed miserably when she made a spelling mistake that she later tried to fix.
Ivanka Trump, the 37-year-old daughter of the President of the United States, is following in her father's footsteps down to the embarrassing spelling errors he's become known for on social media.
She took to Twitter on Tuesday to congratulate Boris Johnson for becoming the new Prime Minister of the United Kindom, but instead mentioned a country that doesn't exist. Though she fixed it, the internet did it's thing and was able to grab the error. It's found below.
"Congratulations @BorisJohnson on becoming the next Prime Minister of the United Kingston."
The memes came rolling in immediately after Ivanka's 6.7 million followers viewed the tweet. After some time, the president's advisor deleted the tweet and replaced it with one that featured the correct spelling of the nation.
The marvellous thing about becoming the PM of the United Kingston, no matter how sincere or credulous, is that it is an Empire upon which the Sun will never set, especially having never existed in the first place. pic.twitter.com/OkeuRZu1by— kɔ̃t də sɛ̃ ʒɛʁmɛ̃ (@CountStGermain) July 23, 2019
While the "United Kingston" can't be found on any map, some people made reference to the London borough called Kingston upon Thames as well as the capital town Kingston located in the island of Jamaica.
Which Kingston Ivanka? Jamaica or upon Thames? pic.twitter.com/s1RvSBBSfv— ade onibada (@SincerelyAde) July 23, 2019
Other people couldn't resist making a connection with Donald Trump who made a somewhat similar mistake just last month. "United Kingston ? Near the Whales?" wrote Twitter user Fabien Major.

Back in June, the President sent out a tweet in which he referred to Prince Charles as the "Prince of Whales" as he defended himself against the "Fake News Media," referring to ABC.
Following an edited interview of Trump, Donald addressed the claim that he would accept information from foreign governments if they gave him "dirt" on his presidential opponents in the coming election.
Not only did @realDonaldTrump just meet with the Prince of Whales, but he’s scheduled to meet shortly with the Queen of Quails, the King of Kangaroos, the Princess of Possums, the Duke of Ducks, the Baron of Barracudas, the Marquis of Macaws, and the Countess of Cuttlefish. 🐋 pic.twitter.com/P0LcHYP7p5— Jon Cooper 🇺🇸 (@joncoopertweets) June 13, 2019
Donald has made several errors online in the past, including creating a whole new word, "covfefe," way back in May 2017. Luckily, his congratulatory tweet towards Johnson was free from error.
"Congratulations to Boris Johnson on becoming the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He will be great!" he wrote. We hope Johnson is not offended by Ivanka's tweet as it seems the tendency to make errors simply runs in the family.
