The poster, which featured an image of a beaming Trump and an inspirational quote from his victory speech, was up for sale on the US Library of Congress website.

The quote read: “No dream is too big, no challenge is to great. Nothing we want for the future is beyond our reach.”

There was just one problem: the word “too” is misspelled “to”.

According to the library’s website, the poster was said to capture “the essence of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency of the United States”, a point social media users took great delight in highlighting.

“A 5th grader would’ve spotted this typo,” one person, Jules Winnfield, tweeted, while another quipped it was the “perfect gift for illiterate friends”.

On Sunday, local time, the library yanked the poster down from its website where it had been selling for US$16.95.

It is the latest spelling blunder associated with the new White House administration.

Earlier on Sunday, the US Department of Education made another mistake by tweeting a tribute to W.E.B. Du Bois, but misspelled his name as W.E.B. DeBois.

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank also criticised a recent White House list of 78 terrorist attacks that it said the media had deliberately “underreported”. The list was riddled with errors, Milbank said.

“The list didn’t expose anything new about terrorist attacks, but it did reveal a previously underreported assault by the Trump administration on the conventions of written English,” Milbank wrote.

“Twenty-seven times, the White House memo misspelled ‘attacker’ or ‘attackers’ as ‘attaker’ or ‘attakers’. San Bernardino lost its second ‘r’. ‘Denmark’ became ‘Denmakr’.

“I wish I could say this attack was unprecedented — or, as President Trump spells it, unpresidented. But I cannot say that. Nothing has distinguished Trump, his aides and his loyal supporters more than their shared struggle with spelling.”
