Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) on Saturday morning slammed President-elect Donald Trump for misspelling a key word in a tweet about military activity in the South China Sea.
“This is madness. A 7:30am Saturday escalation of diplomatic crisis w China via Twitter, w misspelling.” Murphy wrote, linking to the now-deleted Trump tweet with the misspelled word.

Earlier Saturday, Trump tweeted calling China’s seizure of a U.S. Navy drone an precedented act — except he wrote “unpresidented” the first time.
The president-elect deleted the tweet and reposted it shortly after, but many onlookers saved screenshots of the original version:
