Donald Trump slammed President Joe Biden Saturday for his latest international gaffe: an embarrassing shout-out to China when he meant to sing Canada’s praises during a state visit to Ottawa.
“Mistakes like this, a really big one in Canada’s Parliament, are just not allowed to happen,” Trump posted on Truth Social. “We are a laughing stock all over the WORLD!”
The 80-year-old president made the cringe-inducing flub in a speech before the Canadian Parliament.
“Today, I applaud China for stepping up,” Biden said as he discussed a new US-Canada border agreement. “Excuse me, I applaud Canada,” he corrected himself, drawing laughs from the assembled lawmakers.
“You can tell what I’m thinking, about China,” he said cryptically, motioning to his head.
In a fund-raising email to supporters, Trump’s campaign said that Biden’s China-boosting “was no accident” — in light of reports that Biden family members received payments from a Chinese energy company in 2017.
“Biden may forget what country he’s in, but he will always remember who’s pulling his strings,” the email read.
