President Donald Trump cheered on a race horse named Covfefe, named after a mysterious message he posted on Twitter in 2017.
The horse ‘Covfefe’ won a Breeder’s Cup event at Santa Anita on Saturday, the sixth win in eight career starts.
“Great!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Monday.
Great! But how do you know it was a “mistweet?” May be something with deep meaning! https://t.co/00EXMCgQLp

The president played coy with the news report that described his word as a “mistweet” after the original sparked a flood of headline and cable chatter in May 2017.
“But how do you know it was a ‘mistweet?'” he asked. “May be something with deep meaning!”
“Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” Trump wrote on May 31, 2017.
