Taking aim at Trump's controversial relations with Russia, one woman on Twitter quipped that she had translated #covfefe into Russian, attaching a doctored image that showed the gibberish word to be a translation of "I resign".

If there's anything generating more buzz Wednesday than the NBA Finals, it's a string of letters tweeted out by President Trump in the overnight hours.

President Donald Trump created a social-media circus when he seemingly invented a new word, "covfefe", in a tweet on Tuesday.

Mr Trump, who presumably had meant to write "press coverage" and failed to finish his sentence, later deleted it and, acknowledging the jokes, wrote, "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"???".

"Despite the constant negative press covfefe", read the United States leader's short tweet sent yesterday.

Dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster checked in with an eye-rolling tweet, and dozens of definitions have been submitted to the Urban Dictionary website, which crowdsources slang terms.

Stifling yawns in the dead of the night, the internet has been scratching its head after Donald Trump used the word "covfefe" in an incoherent midnight tweet on May 31.

"People in covfefe houses shouldn't throw covfefe", the former first lady tweeted on Wednesday evening.

His original tweet had also been deleted from his account.

And that was it for almost six hours before the unfinished tweet was removed from the president's account.
