President Donald Trump was widely mocked online for his terse tweet saying he’d reject the congressional vote to overturn his emergency declaration funding his proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall.

“VETO!” Trump wrote on Thursday afternoon.

VETO!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 14, 2019

The president later elaborated:

I look forward to VETOING the just passed Democrat inspired Resolution which would OPEN BORDERS while increasing Crime, Drugs, and Trafficking in our Country. I thank all of the Strong Republicans who voted to support Border Security and our desperately needed WALL!

Many people on Twitter tauntingly suggested that Trump, who has a history of posting wild typos on his favorite social media platform, had meant to write “Beto” in the first tweet ― in reference to the Democratic former Texas congressman, Beto O’Rourke, who announced his 2020 presidential run earlier in the day.

Some wags even guessed it was the president’s weird way of endorsing his potential rival.

Let's be real. Given his spelling track record, we all know he meant to spell "BETO!" @BetoORourke https://t.co/up4nLix6IO
