A Trump Tweet, Copyedited

Trump’s grammar, spelling and punctuation are about as atrocious as it gets.  Based on how the man speaks, we certainly do not expect syntactical perfection, but some of these Tweets are borderline incoherent.

His phrasing is odd and often out of order; he doesn’t know how to how to use quotes (in ironic and unironic scenarios); he has no clue when a word should be capitalized; his parentheticals are redundant and childish, and he’s wildly liberal with his use of exclamation points.

So, we decided to copyedit a Trump Tweet from yesterday—one that was particularly offensive to the English language.
