The ‘First Daughter’ of the US took to Twitter to pay tribute to Mr Johnson, who will replace Theresa May as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. But in a heartfelt message, Ivanka misspelled a crucial word, a mistake quickly jumped on by social media users. She said: “Congratulations @BorisJohnson on becoming the next Prime Minister of the United Kingston.”
The spelling mistake in the final word was not missed by critics of the Trump administration.
One Twitter user said: “I’m 14 and can spell better than you.”
Another said: “You can’t even spell it!”
The Tweet quickly gained hundreds of retweets and thousands of likes, depsite – or, perhaps, because of – the error.
She later deleted the message and wrote a second, error-free version.
Her father, US president Donald Trump, had earlier Tweeted his own congratulations for Mr Johnson.
Mr Trump said on Twitter: “Congratulations to Boris Johnson on becoming the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He will be great!”
