Late night mysterious tweet by US President Donald Trump “Despite the constant negative press covfefe”, has not only left his followers baffled and a little concerned but has also made the entire social media audience going crazy to search the meaning of the word “Covfefe”. The nonsensical message was retweeted more than 125,000 times and was widely covered in the mainstream press overnight. Some speculate it to be “Coverage” but who knows!!
