Burger King trolls US President Donald Trump's misspelling of hamburger

Burger King has ripped into US President Donald Trump's spelling of the classic American meal, the hamburger.

On Monday (local time), the President tweeted he was having dinner with college football champions the Clemson Tiger at the White House, where he served them "massive amounts of fast food".

A White House statement said President Trump "wanted to host a fun event" for the team despite the federal government shutdown, which is now in its fourth week.

"Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security, much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed - so the President is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favourite fast foods."

Among the offerings were "over 1000 hamberders" - a misspelling which has now gone viral with a tweet from fast food outlet Burger King trolling the President.

"Due to a large order placed yesterday, we're all out of hamberders. Just serving hamburgers today," the tweet said.

Other users on the social media platform comments on the President's strange spelling, with one comparing it to his infamous "covfefe" tweet.

"Great start to the day. A hamberder and covfefe," said the user, with a picture of a hamburger and coffee.

"Hamberder (n) - Like a hamburger but served by an idiot who believes college athletes don't deserve respect," said another.

Speaking to media after the meal, President Trump confirmed he had paid for dinner out of his own pocket.

But the choice to serve fast food to the champions was also mocked online.

"White House Staffer, choking through tears - 'I... guess... we could... use the... Lincoln gravy boats... for the... Mc... the McNug... the McNugget sauces," tweeted one user.

Mr Trump's tweet has since been deleted and replaced with one with correct spelling.
