Getty Trump called Defense Secretary Mark Esper (pictured middle) Mark Esperanto.  Who is Mark Esperanto? That’s what people wondered when President Donald Trump referred to him in a Sunday morning tweet. It turns out, though, that there is no Mark Esperanto. and Trump was actually referring to Defense Secretary Mark Esper. CNN’s Brian Stelter jumped into the rounds of criticism against Trump for the misspelling on Twitter. “Someone’s phone converted Esper into Esperanto. The result is the president misspelling the name of his own defense secretary. Shouldn’t these tweets be, you know, proofread?” he wrote, sharing a screenshot of the president’s Tweet. Here’s what Trump wrote:  Trump later posted an updated tweet with the right name, Mark Esper: “‘The ceasefire is holding up very nicely. There are some minor skirmishes that have ended quickly. New areas being resettled with Kurds. U.S. soldiers are not in combat or ceasefire zone. We have secured the Oil.’ Mark Esper, Secretary of Defense. Ending endless wars!” Here’s how the tweet originally looked with the name Mark Esperanto in it:  “Mark Esperanto, Secretary of Defense, ‘The ceasefire is holding up very nicely. There are some minor skirmishes that have ended quickly. New areas being resettled with the Kurds.’ USA soldiers are not in combat or ceasefire zones. We have secured the Oil. Bringing soldiers home!”   Idrees Ali, Reuters foreign police correspondent, then raised additional questions about the Trump tweet. He wrote on Twitter: “I’m not sure who Trump is referring to, but I’m travelling with Defense Secretary Esper and cant recall the quote Trump is using. While speaking with us Enroute to Afghanistan, Esper also made no mention of new areas being resettled with Kurds or oil.” Anthony Scaramucci, who used to work for Trump until he didn’t, wrote on Twitter: “Trump’s best attempts to appeal to Hispanic voters are tweeting about the taco bowls at Trump Grill and changing Defense Secretary Mark Esper’s name to Esperanto.”   Brandon Friedman, a New York Daily News columnist, joked, “If Trump decides Mark Esper’s name really *is* Esperanto, within hours, Republicans will be referring to “Secretary Esperanto” and Esper himself will be on Fox News explaining why he mistakenly referred to himself by the wrong name for so many years.” Here’s what you need to know:Defense Secretary Mark Esper Is a Military Veteran Who Commanded a Rifle Company  US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper (L), US President Donald Trump, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army General Mark A.
