After U.S. President Donald Trump puzzled everyone with his 'covfefe' tweet that went viral overnight, White House press secretary Sean Spicer on 31 may offered a cryptic explanation.

"The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant," Spicer told reporters during a press briefing when asked about the tweet.

Laughter erupted in the room following his tantalizing answer, reports the Hill.

President Trump's incomplete, misspelled tweet read, "Despite the constant negative press covfefe."

The tweet unleashed a torrent of reactions from Twitter users, who tried to define the term.

Speculations even ran amok that the President was punch drunk as he typed tweet, which was deleted after a few hours.
