While congratulating the former British Foreign Secretary, the White House advisor misspelled the country’s name. Although she deleted the tweet quickly but it was too late and screenshots of the error already started doing rounds on social media.

There were a series of memes and jokes, with many people talking about how US President Donald Trump recently addressed Prince Charlesas ‘Prince of Whales’ and other spelling mistakes he had made. Social media users were also quick to catch spelling mistakes.
to be fair to ivanka, kingston’s population is much nearer in size to the number of people who voted for boris than the UK’s so it’s an easy mistake to make pic.twitter.com/YRTGanqZG6— saz (@sarahlostctrl) July 23, 2019
Ivanka sends her congratulations to the Prime Minister of the United “Kingston” shortly after Trump praised the Prince of “Whales.” These people are so utterly incompetent and embarrassing even on the smallest stuff. pic.twitter.com/Q5c6v00YYv— Brian Klaas (@brianklaas) July 23, 2019
Ivanka Trump congratulated Boris “the British Trump” Johnson for his election as “the next Prime Minister of the United Kingston.” The entire island of Jamaica and daddy’s nemesis, the “Prince of Whales” are not pleased. #UnitedKingston pic.twitter.com/IOmiBkAlR0— Bryan Dawson (@BryanDawsonUSA) July 23, 2019
When Ivanka tweeted United Kingston, I knew the apple didn't fall far from the treefefe.— Regi Brittain (@RegiBrittain) July 23, 2019
Which Kingston Ivanka? Jamaica or upon Thames? pic.twitter.com/s1RvSBBSfv— Ade Onibada (@SincerelyAde) July 23, 2019
Great news. Ivanka says Boris is PM of United Kingston. The rest of us can relax. pic.twitter.com/sITasEtjul— Kevin Ellis (@ParchKevin) July 23, 2019
Later she updated her tweet with correct spelling:
Congratulations @BorisJohnson on becoming the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) July 23, 2019
