United States of America President Donald Trump is one of the most powerful men on the face of the Earth. And yet, not a day goes by when he says (or tweets) something he probably shouldn't have. Once such incident was when he gave his State Of The Union speech in Capitol Hill on Tuesday. This one is sure to have you in splits. Donald Trump thinks Nepal and Bhutan are part of India. No kidding, Trump said that he knows that Nepal and Bhutan are part of Indian territory. Geography lessons anyone?
Reportedly, a TIME magazine correspondent John Walcott narrated the whole incident in an article on Tuesday. "...In another briefing on South Asia, Trump’s advisors brought a map of the region from Afghanistan to Bangladesh, according to intelligence officers with knowledge of the meeting and congressional officials who were briefed on it. Trump, they said, pointed at the map and said he knew that Nepal was part of India, only to be told that it is an independent nation. When said he was familiar with Bhutan and knew it, too, was part of India, his briefers told him that Bhutan was an independent kingdom."
This isn't Donald Trump's first gaffe with Nepal and Bhutan. The article also goes on to detail that earlier in 2017, a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was a laughing matter after the US President mispronounced Nepal as 'nipple' and laughingly referred to Bhutan as 'button', while he was looking at a map of South Asia.
