The Library of Congress removed an official inauguration portrait of President Trump that contained a spelling error Sunday shortly after people on social media tweeted about the mistake.

The official inauguration portrait, which was for sale on the Library of Congress’ website, contained a quote from the president, which the library said: “captures the essence of Donald Trump’s campaign.”

“No dream is too big, no challenge is to great. Nothing we want for the future is beyond our reach,” the quote says on the poster.

The only problem? The word “too” is spelled “to.”

On social media, people were quick to point out the typo.

The item was later removed from the Library of Congress online store, but can still be viewed through the Internet Archive site. 

According to AP, it’s at least the third spelling mistake from the government in the past few weeks.

On Sunday, the Education Department misspelled W.E.B. DuBois on Twitter.
