President Donald Trump has repeatedly displayed a stunning ignorance of world geography, according to a new report from Politico.
Sources tell the publication that, while preparing for a meeting with the prime minister of India, Trump had no idea how to pronounce the name of Asian nation Nepal, which he initially pronounced as “nipple.”
What’s more, Trump didn’t seem to understand that Nepal was its own separate country and instead assumed it was just part of India.
“He didn’t know what those were,” one source tells Politico. ” He thought it was all part of India. He was like, ‘What is this stuff in between and these other countries?'”
In addition to mangling the pronunciation of Nepal, Trump also reportedly bungled pronouncing the name of the nearby nation of Bhutan, which he believed was pronounced “button.”
Trump last year also infamously invented an African country he called “Nambia” during a United Nations lunch meeting with African leaders.
