Donald J Trump, the president of United States and the benevolent provider of memes for the Internet, posted a cryptic (or confusing?) tweet around midnight on May 31. His tweet that read “Despite the constant negative press covfefe” left many people across the world confused. Soon after, the rest of the world came together to mince no words and waste no time making the #covfefememes. Trump, who realised the hullabaloo his tweet had stirred up on the micro-blogging site, deleted it and posted another tweet that only added to the chaos — “Who can figure out the true meaning of “covfefe” ??? Enjoy!” Well, not the ones to be left behind, Indian Twitter users joined the bandwagon and came up with some of the most hilarious #covfefe memes you will chance upon on the Internet!
In case you still don’t know what we are talking about, this is Trump’s tweet.
This was his ‘quick cover up’ after realising what he had posted.
Who can figure out the true meaning of “covfefe” ??? Enjoy!

Just when the meme-makers were considering going back into hibernation now that the POTUS had returned from his first official foreign trip, his tweet sure seems to be welcomed as a ray of hope by many. From the undivided attention his hands got (much thanks to Melania Trump) to the memes with Pope Francis, the harvest was definitely bountiful for the Internet meme-makers recently.
