"Sometimes you need protest in order to heal" - Donald Trump

"Sometimes you need protest in order to heal, & we will heal, & be stronger than ever before!" he tweeted.

In response to the protest in Boston, U.S. President Donald Trump has said the country needs such protests and will heal thereafter from the troubles.

"I want to applaud the many protesters in Boston who are speaking out against bigotry and hate".

But his first two tweets included the same mistake "heel" as "heal". And while the tweets were deleted and reposted correctly, Twitter can neither forget nor keep calm and carry on.

Earlier this year, Trump sent a lot of people scurrying for dictionaries when he posted an odd tweet that used the word "covfefe".

When British Prime Minister Theresa May visited Washington, the presidential and vice-presidential agenda both spoke about "Teresa", and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was referred to as the president of his country.

Author Stephen King tweeted simply, "In his latest tweet, Trump commands America to heel".

Trump has always been criticized for failing to stamp out white supremacist voices lurking in his base, and those criticisms reached fever pitch after he blamed the Charlottesville violence "on many sides".

"Sincere thanks to whoever ran into the crapper to explain the value of protest to the president, then ran in again to explain spelling", Harris wrote.

More than 73,000 people retweeted the tweet in just 120 minutes, and it earned its own hashtag. Available on Android and IOS.
