Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: December of 2016
Categories: Donald Trump
Donald Trump accused China of committing an unpresidented [sic] act after the Chinese navy seized a United States naval drone in the South China Sea. Unpresidented is not an actual word and Trump did not correct his error for more than an hour before changing it to unprecedented. The original Tweet read "China steals United States Navy research drone in international waters – rips it out of water and takes it to China in unpresidented act.”
