Donald Trump completely butchered the pronunciation of his social media app at a rally in Delaware on Saturday, 23 April.

Trump launched the app, ironically named 'Truth Social', back in February, and the social media site, which looks eerily similar to Twitter, hasn't been doing well in recent weeks.

Now, it seems that even Trump is finding it hard to promote the site, as he's seemingly unable to properly pronounce its name.

Speaking in front of a crowd in Delaware, surrounded by 'Save America' signs, the former president said: "I had to give the American people their voice back by building something."

Nope, Trump wasn't talking about his infamous wall, he was talking about Truth Social – however, he couldn't quite seem to get the words out.

In the most recent moment that was sure to generate memes across the internet, Trump fumbled over the name of his new release, calling it: "Troth – Truth Central".

Obviously, people took to Twitter to comment on the blunder, although Trump is still banned from the platform so he probably won't see the onslaught of memes.

One user wrote: "Trump doesn’t even know the name of his own social media platform "Truth Social"."

Another added: "trump forgot the name of his own social media platform in Ohio this weekend he bungled the name of Truth Social, calling it "Truth Central" instead. He also messed up the pronunciation of "drop box" too, calling them "drok boxes."

A third likened the new platform to the Titanic: "Live look on troth sential…er…I mean truth social this morning."

Trump's platform hasn't been doing well, with analytics site Sensor Tower reporting last month that as few as 60,000 new users are signing up each week, which is down significantly from the 870,000 that signed up on launch week.

Trump made the platform after being banned from Twitter following the January 6 Capitol riots.

The ex-president was accused of inciting violence on the day of the riot, with Twitter proceeding to permanently ban him from the site.

Ahead of the app's launch, Trump said: "We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favourite American president has been silenced. This is unacceptable. I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon."

At least he got the name right that time.
