It is obvious President Donald Trump’s entire team, including the education secretary, is pants when it comes to linguistics.
On the same day the 11th United States Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos misspelled the name of a notable historian and civil rights activist, social media users pointed out a ridiculous gaffe on Trump’s official inauguration portrait poster offered for sale by the Library of Congress.
“No dream is too big, no challenge is to great. Nothing we want for the future is beyond our reach,” was emblazoned across the picture — complete with a misspelled “too” as “to.”
Obviously, Twitter had a field day.
There is a typo on Trump's official portrait, which is the sort of detail I'd consider too unbelievable if I read it in a work of fiction. https://t.co/w7JJV0Ml4g— Geraldine (@everywhereist) February 13, 2017

No joke: Purchasable copy of Trump's Inauguration Print, direct from the Library of Congress site. A 5th grader would've spotted this typo. pic.twitter.com/zomWsMojYV— Jules Winnfield (@paulm4749) February 12, 2017
My followers know I'm the last person who should be pointing out a typo, but what the hell, it's Trump's official commemorative portrait. pic.twitter.com/offYWeQ0mz— A Once Great Nation (@USARedOrchestra) February 13, 2017
The Library of Congress was offering prints of the inaugural photo for $16.95 but once the mistake came to light, the page was taken down from the website. It’s not yet certain how many people bought the portrait before the typo was spotted.
The website described the print as one that “captures the essence of Donald Trump's campaign for the presidency of the United States.” Ironic.
It seems bungling words is the norm for the Trump team. The White House press secretary frequently misspeaks words even while he is reading them off a paper.
Even the president himself was forced to delete a tweet from his Twitter account on the first day of his presidency, because he misspelled “honored” as “honered.”
But since his vocabulary is no better than a sixth-grader, what else can you expect.
