Yes, Donald Trump makes spelling errors in his tweets from time to time (as do we all), but it looks like it’s The Hill that will get mocked this time.

They’re going after him for spelling “judgment” as “judgement”:
Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump blasted Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton for her “stupidity” in a tweet Sunday morning, but misspelled the word “judgment” in the process.
Here’s the original tweet:
Hillary Clinton is not qualified to be president because her judgement has been proven to be so bad! Would be four more years of stupidity!

Although The Hill does acknowledge that “judgement” is an acceptable alternate spelling:
While the dictionary does list ‘judgement’ as an alternate spelling, many spell check operations consider it a misspelling. Merriam-Webster notes that ‘judgement’ is an older spelling that has fallen out of use in the United States.
And The Hill should know it’s acceptable because a search for “judgement” on TheHill.com yeilds 160 hits:
