Instead of a welcome letter – that should have been signed in US President Donald Trump’s name, White House has goofed in sending Aisha Sultan’s UK-born husband a customary welcome letter from the President – but signed by erstwhile president Obama.
Twitter reactions trail the ‘error’ as it means that the customary letter has not been updated in the six months since Mr Trump took office.
Ms Sultan posted a picture of the letter from her husband’s welcome packet:
My British-born husband takes his oath of citizenship today. In the packet for new Americans, the welcome letter from POTUS is from Obama. 😂 pic.twitter.com/O56cMj0hhx

Many wondered why such error could not have been avoided when it requires just a simple fix.
