Unintended Solution to "Removing Whitespace" Challenge

Tell us what’s happening:
I’m not having a problem, but I think this is an unintended solution to the challenge. It passes all the tests but is semantically not what the challenge asks the student to do. I don’t know if the tests should be changed to account for this or if this doesn’t matter at all

Your code so far

let hello = "   Hello, World!  ";
let wsRegex = /\s{2,}/g; // Change this line
let result = hello.replace(wsRegex, ""); // Change this line

Challenge: Remove Whitespace from Start and End

Link to the challenge:

It is a solution tailored specifically for the input given, for example if the platform were to test also for

" Hello, World!   "

The above regex would fail.
Perhaps the goal of the challenge was specifically not to be too strict with the checks and “edge” cases.
