Is (sic) spelled correctly?

Yes, it's Latin, and could be translated as "in this way" or "thus." It is usually used when someone is quoted directly, but used an incorrect spelling. For example, a journalist might write of an "unpresidented (sic) act," inserting the "sic" in parentheses, so that the reader knows that the misspelling is not the journalist's own, but is spelled this way in Trump's original text.
