President Donald Trump on Monday appeared to confuse the White House Cabinet Room with the “boardroom” from his former reality TV show “The Apprentice.”
“We’ll see you in the boardroom,” Trump told reporters after introducing his new chief of staff, Gen. John Kelly.

Twitter users were quick to point out the president’s error — and heap mockery on him:
There is not a boardroom in the White House https://t.co/pTaAi725jL

As Trump goes to cabinet mtg, he says he's headed to "boardroom"… Geez, he really does think this is The Apprentice: West Wing Addition.

@realDonaldTrump So does today’s “Boardroom” meeting start by everyone over kissing your ass like the last one?

Cabinet Room isn't the boardroom and President Trump isn't chairman of the board. He's President of the United States. Different functions

Trump thinks he is back on his Apprentice Show if he is saying "boardroom".
Alzheimer's like his dad. His verbal levels are deteriorating.

Boardroom? You're not our boss. You are the President. You work for us. ALL of us. Try to remember that.

Freudian slip? Maybe he should Just give up and go back to the boardroom. He'd be a lot happier. So would we. @realDonaldTrump
