Donald Trump, mocked on social media after calling Charles the 'Prince of WHALES'

Trump, as hot-tempered as we all know, was quick to jump on to Twitter to respond to a news report which claimed he said he'd listen if foreign governments offered him 'dirt' on opponents.

But in his apparent fury, he misspelled Wales, the country in the United Kingdom, when referring to the title of Prince Charles.

Trump tweeted: 'I meet and talk to 'foreign governments' every day. I just met with the Queen of England (U.K.), the Prince of Whales, the P.M. of the United Kingdom, the P.M. of Ireland, the President of France and the President of Poland. We talked about 'Everything!' 

'Should I immediately call the FBI about these calls and meetings? How ridiculous! I would never be trusted again. With that being said, my full answer is rarely played by the Fake News Media. They purposely leave out the part that matters.'

The reference to Whales, rather than Wales, caused hilarity online, with many Twitter users imagining how such a prince might look.  

One joker wrote: 'Who is next? The Queen of Bees? The Prime Minister of Elephants? The King of Kong? What a time to be alive...'

Others pointed out that the Queen of England is not the correct title of Queen Elizabeth, who is actually Queen of the United Kingdom. Although Mr Trump did write 'U.K.' in brackets. 

Mr Trump later deleted the tweet and replaced it with one that spelled Wales correctly.
