Bad Time For A Typo - White House Memo Calls For "Peach" In Middle East

After what can generously be described as a rough week in the nation’s capital, it’s pretty safe to say that President Donald Trump and company were looking forward to taking off for a pre-planned overseas trip. Distance can sometimes help put things in perspective, and perhaps the endless stream of negative stories will slow down a bit while Trump is out of town. Of course, that partially depends on the news that comes out of the trip - and the White House itself. As AOL shares, the Trump administration may want to get some extra eyes on things either way.

A press release was sent out to list out the details of one of Trump’s stops in Israel. It was a pretty basic memo that you would expect to announce a president’s itinerary, and it would normally just be viewed as some standard information that’s expected to be passed along. However, there was something pretty curious in this humdrum release.

That would be an incredibly glaring typo, which indicates the purpose of Trump’s visit was to "promote the possibility of lasting peach." Since there have been no previous reports that Trump is particularly enthusiastic about peaches, readers of the statement were obviously confused.

It’s clear that whoever wrote the statement meant to say ‘peace,’ but the statement was out there in all its glory with the word ‘peach.’ In the grand scheme of things, it’s not a huge deal as it happens to everyone from time to time. However, for a White House that’s under such tremendous scrutiny, it’s an incredibly bad look. It shows a certain level of sloppiness from those that compose and proof these statements, and an administration that struggles to get its message across simply can’t afford that.

In an extreme case, one poorly placed word or phrase can change the whole meaning of a statement. That would lead to some seriously red faces, and it could also lead to a ton of confusion from foreign leaders that may be the subject of such a statement. While it can obviously be corrected after its release, the fact remains that it shouldn’t have to be.

Several pairs of eyes should be on anything that comes out of the Trump White House. If there already are plenty of eyes on these releases, then perhaps it’s time for some early job reviews to identify potential trouble spots.
