WASHINGTON (AP) — A midnight tweet from President Donald Trump has social media trying to find a meaning in the mysterious term "covfefe."

Trump tweeted just after midnight Eastern time on Wednesday: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe."

The tweet immediately went viral and became one of the president's more popular posts. Trump poked fun at the typo, tweeting around 6 a.m., "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!"

Many on Twitter have supplied tongue-in-cheek meanings. One user joked that "covfefe" is already a popular name for babies in states that voted for Trump.

A couple of northeast Kansas law enforcement agencies even tweeted their responses to the "covfefe" flap. The Lawrence Police Dept. tweeted a couple of pictures of a roundtable discussion, saying "Chief Khatib has called an emergency meeting of the #Covfefe" to determine how we will address this moving forward."

Over in Lenexa, their police seemed to offer some advice for when you get stopped by an officer, tweeting:
Officer: "Do you know why I pulled you over?"
Motorist: #Covfefe
Officer: "have a nice day sir"
