‘You’re’ not ‘your’: Estonian president corrects illiterate Trump fan’s grammar
What is it about Twitter trolls who don’t know the proper usage of “your” and “you’re?”
Via The Huffington Post, it seems that Estonian President Toomas Ilves this month had the pleasure of interacting with one of Donald Trump’s delightful supporters on Twitter.
Why is a Trump fan trolling the president of Estonia, you ask?
Mostly because Trump has said that, under his presidency, Estonia and other Baltic states will need to pay more money if they expect the United States to come to their aid. Trump’s statement comes in spite of the fact that Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are all NATO allies.
So this understandably has the Estonian president a little bit on edge. In fact, he’s been sending out tweets of articles condemning Trump’s NATO proposals:

Ilves has also pointed out that Estonia is one of just five European NATO countries that has met its obligation to spend 2% of its GDP on defense:
Estonia is 1 of 5 NATO allies in Europe to meet its 2% def expenditures commitment. Fought, with no caveats, in NATO's sole Art 5 op. in Afg

At any rate, this apparently attracted a Trump supporter’s attention. The supporter informed Ilves that “your the president of Estonia,” and asked him why he was speaking in English instead of his own language.
Ilves responded by pointing out that his own English appears to be better than many Trump fans’ English — and he threw in some Latin just to show off:
The Trump fan has since deleted their Twitter handle, which is understandable because no one wants to be remembered as the guy who got completely owned by the president of Estonia.
