The US president on Tuesday boasted about his ability to write "bestselling books" as he criticized the press on its constant checking of his Tweets in search of mistakes. "I capitalize certain words only for emphasis, not because they should be capitalized!"

Although, he altered the original tweet, it's unlikely that Trump's writing style or his claims about being a best-selling author will change.
