The U.S. Library of Congress pulled the official inauguration portrait of President Donald Trump from its online website over the weekend because of a typo.
The poster read, “No dream is too big, no challenge is to great. Nothing we want for the future is beyond our reach.”
In the sentence, the second “to” is misspelled.

The poster itself shows Trump standing alone and smiling.

The poster was removed from the website at some point on Sunday evening, according to The Hill. Social media users were among the first to recognize the typo.

The Library of Congress website had described the poster as “capturing the essence of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency of the United States.”
Although the print has been pulled, an archival version of the webpage where it was being sold for $16.95 can still be seen online.
This weekend, the U.S. Department of Education also created buzz on social media with a typo on a Twitter post.
The department had referenced W.E.B. Du Bois, founder of the NCAAP.
“Education must not simply teach work – it must teach life,” the tweet read.
However it credited the quote to W.E.B. “DeBois,” misspelling the founder’s name.
After the error was made on Feb. 12, the department offered its “deepest apologizes” for the mistake, once again tweeting a typo. This problem was quickly fixed with a new post, spelling “apologies” correctly.
