Trump’s letter to Supreme Leader has been graded ‘F’ for grammar mistakes

AN EXTREMELY FUNNY checked version of President Donald J. Trump’s letter to North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un has gone viral on the internet; the letter was checked, like a teacher checks the letter of kindergarteners, by someone who gave him an F for its literary structure.

A letter was issued to Kim Jong-un by The White House in which it was announced the cancellation of the planned summit which was set to take place in Singapore.

The original checked letter inspired many copies, which are also going viral on the social media with red-marked corrections pointing out the grammatical mistakes and inaccuracies in facts.

Trump wrote a personal letter to Chairman of the rogue state, in which he said that he would be cancelling the long-planned summit.

Ryan Sheffield marked the mistakes of the letter and gave Trump an ‘F’; he also left a note on the top which reads: ‘See me after class, Donald.’

It is no surprise that the President has a poor vocabulary.

The above image was a shared by the Globe, they used an algorithm in the past, known as the Flesch-Kincaid readability test. Trump’s vocabulary is so limited that it can be properly understood by a fourth-grader.
Sheffield pointed out several mistakes related to vocabulary and structures of the sentence.

Another person, named Michael Stone, also did the same and proofread the letter with a red-pointer. However, Michelle Huete was feeling benevolent and gave the president D for his efforts.

In his letter, President Trump wrote:

‘We greatly appreciate your time, patience and effort with respect to our recent negotiations and discussions relative to a summit long sought by both parties, which was scheduled to take place on June 12 in Singapore.’

‘We were informed that the meeting was requested by North Korea, but that to us is totally irrelevant.’

‘I was very much looking forward to being there with you.’

‘Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting.’

Apparently, it is believed that in his writing Trump was calling North Korea out to a verbal broadside pronounced against his Vice President Mike Pence by the rogue state’s foreign minister in which he called the VP ‘ignorant and stupid.

The President then added ‘someday, I look very much forward to meeting you.’

He referred to the dictator as ‘His Excellency Kim Jong-un’ and also bragged about the United States’ ‘massive and powerful’ nuclear capabilities.’

He furthermore stated:

‘Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place.’

‘You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never be used.’

A few days ago Trump hinted that there was ‘substantial chance’ that the summit between the two nations would be cancelled.

Recently, he announced on meeting with the President Moon of South Korea in Oval office that if the meeting doesn’t happen, it can happen later.

  • It seems more likely than not that the editor’s reading skills are below par and his comprehension even lower. I had absolutely no problem understanding what Trump wrote but discerning the editor’s diatribe was nonsensical and biased.
