Covfefe vol. 2: Trump official’s emoji-filled ‘statement’ takes Twitter by storm

Principal Deputy Press Secretary of the White House, Sarah H. Sanders tweeted a 'statement' Sunday filled with emojis instead of letters. The tweet took Twitter by storm, especially after U.S. President Donald Trump's recent "covfefe" typo.

The tweet begins with an anchor emoji, continues with a row of traffic lights and world maps, and also includes several emojis representing historical buildings like a European castle and Shinto shrine.

The tweet also included some letters, reading "lolaklkk," which was perceived as a reference to the widely used internet abbreviation - "lol" (laughing out loud).

The first response to the tweet was perhaps the wittiest, with a user named David Blaustein saying, "This is the most coherent statement to come from the Trump administration."

The tweet was retweeted almost 6,000 times and liked by over 10,000 people.

A Donald Trump tweet lit up the internet on May 31, with users across the world left scratching their heads over "covfefe," a bizarre word apparently made up by Trump.

"Despite the constant negative press covfefe," read Trump's tweet. The tweet was generally thought to be a typo while trying to spell "coverage."
