Trump Praises Health Care of Nonexistent African Country

With a slip of the tongue, U.S. President Donald Trump created a new African country: "Nambia."

Trump seemingly misspoke on Wednesday, praising the country for its progress while having lunch with several African heads of state during the U.N.'s annual General Assembly gathering in New York City. Some were quick to point out that "Nambia" does not exist in Africa, or elsewhere.

"In Guinea and Nigeria, you fought a horrifying Ebola outbreak. Nambia's health system is increasingly self-sufficient," Trump said in his remarks.

Some theorized the president may have meant Gambia or Zambia, but an official White House transcript correctly referenced the nation of Namibia.

Maybe he should consider asking Pat Sajak if he can buy a vowel.

is this the first time in History a POTUS mispronounced the name of a country?

Whoever theorized he meant Zambia or Gambia is IMNSHO pretty slow on the uptake. It seems pretty clear he meant Namibia to me.

Compared to his usual stupidities, this seems like a harmless slip of the tongue.

Given all the material there is to criticize him this is weak. Seriously weak.
