Trump has expanded his knowledge of geography


February 10, the telegram the Tajik President Emomali Rahmon on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, the President of the United States Donald trump said that the United States supports the independence of Tajikistan and look forward to continued cooperation in achieving security and stability in the region. The only question is, do Americans know where is the country of Tajikistan.

Donald Trump. The frame of the TV news Fox10.

According to messages of news agencies, the telegram trump Rahmon says in part: “the United States fully supported the independence and integrity of Tajikistan and its neighboring countries, as well as the efforts of Tajikistan’s prosperity and the unification of Central Asia. This year, Tajikistan and the United States also celebrate the 25th anniversary of close bilateral cooperation. With the beginning of his administration, I hope for mutual respect and fidelity to the promotion of common goals in regional security and stability.”

The President of Tajikistan also did not remain in debt: in his response letter, he called the U.S. “an important partner in the international arena”. However, all the difference, and the difference principle, is that Rahmon, in his time graduated from the Soviet school knows where is the United States. But Donald trump, how to drink to give even in General terms, is not, where is Tajikistan.

The fact that geography in the United States study is not as in our country, explained, “MK” teacher of one of Moscow schools, where children of the employees of the diplomatic corps stationed in Moscow. For example, an American will never understand the presence in the Russian classical University, faculty of geography. And how else, if all of the geographical science in America held in the framework of other disciplines, not bringing in a single geographical course. And the effect, admittedly, it gives the amazing.

However, his own country Americans still somehow imagine. But the world…

U.S. President George W. Bush, for example, long and hard to confuse Slovenia with Slovakia. But this is Europe, with which the Americans are bound by the General mass of Affairs, since NATO membership. As for the former Soviet republics in Central Asia, the knowledge of the Americans, to put it mildly, extremely limited. The study of this area with the exception of single specimens of the narrow-brewski professionals in the US does it no one ever. So the names of some countries the average American probably never heard in your life.
