Some may have wondered why President Trump capitalizes certain words in his tweets that, grammatically speaking, don't require capitalization, but the president has now addressed the issue and says the practice is purposeful. "After having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly likes to pour over my tweets looking for a mistake," the POTUS tweeted Tuesday. "I capitalize certain words only for emphasis, not b/c they should be capitalized!" Proving his point, the AP notes that "pore" is misspelled as "pour" in the tweet. (More President Trump stories.)
