On Saturday, even as major US media outlets projected that Joe Biden would become the 46th President of the United States, a combative Donald Trump harped that the former vice-president was “rushing to falsely pose as the winner” and that the “race is far from over”.

However, shortly before the US media called the election in favour of Joe Biden, Trump announced that there would be a “lawyers press conference” at the Four Seasons in Philadelphia. The tweet gave rise to confusion on the exact location even as Trump quickly issued a clarification. In reality, the conference was to be held at Four Seasons Total Landscaping, a company situated between a crematorium and an adult book store, and not the Four Seasons luxury hotel.

“Trump, a hotelier at heart, announces a press conference at Philadelphia’s “Four Seasons” at 11, before specifying it’s at Four Seasons Total Landscaping at 11:30,” White House reporter Josh Wingrove tweeted while sharing screenshots of the deleted tweets.

However, it was not just the confusion about the venue but also the actual location that triggered hilarious reactions online. According to the NZ Herald, the press conference was held in front of a closed garage door that was next to an adult book store. While many wondered if a mistake was made while booking the venue, others came up with hilarious reactions to the gaffe.

Later, a clarification was also tweeted by the Four Seasons hotel to dispel confusion.
