A mistake in a tweet sent by President Trump that referenced “Aircraft One” forced the Commander-in-Chief to delete the message.

Tweeting about Thursday’s Fourth of July celebration in Washington, D.C., Trump accidentally referred to “Air Force One” as “Aircraft One.” The aforementioned title is a call signal for any plane that carries the president.
