Spicer says 'small group' understands strange, late night Trump tweet
WASHINGTON - White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer claims that "a small group of people know exactly" what President Donald Trump meant when Trump posted a seemingly unintelligible tweet early Wednesday morning.
Trump tweeted shortly before 1 a.m. that "Despite the constant negative press covfefe." The tweet ended there.
The tweet remained up for over an hour before it was finally deleted, prompting jokes and questions over the meaning of "covfefe".
