Donald trump has appealed to the United Nations with a speech to the leaders of African countries. First, the US President spoke about the attempts of his friends to “get rich” in Africa, and then twice mentioned in his speech non-existent Nambia, noting “the growing autonomy of the health care system” in this country.

The video of his speech appeared on YouTube-channel of the White house. Users of social networks made fun of the mistake, Trump reminded that country called Namibia in reality does not exist. Commentators suggested that the American leader was referring to the Gambia.

In the published later on the website of the White house speech, “Nambu” was replaced by Namibia. In addition, the text of the appeal was made, and other changes, said RIA Novosti.

Trump had previously made similar errors. So, the us President inadvertently “offended” Ukraine, using the name of the country the definite article “the”. Former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul noted that this form of treatment is offensive to Ukrainians.
