💭 Biden Mixes Up His Countries And Continents Again on Trip to Regional Summit

Colombia is apparently “top of mind” for President Joe Biden, who seemed to confuse the South America nation with Cambodia while traveling to Phnom Penh for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit and again Saturday while thanking Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen for his leadership as chair.

“Now that we’re back together here in Cambodia, I look forward to building even stronger progress than we’ve already made, and I want to thank the Prime Minister of Colombia for his leadership as ASEAN chair and for hosting all of us,” Biden declared as he opened the summit, according to Reuters.

Biden similarly referred to Cambodia as the South American nation when talking with reporters before departing for the ASEAN summit announcing that he was “heading over to Colombia” before correcting himself, reported Fox News.

Geographic gaffes aren’t just reserved for Joe Biden, though. Vice President Kamala Harris made headlines in September when she stated that the United States had a “strong and enduring alliance” with the Republic of North Korea.

Biden’s latest gaffe is just one in a long series of such mistakes he has made as president, including an awkward moment in September when he tried to acknowledge deceased Republican Indiana Rep. Jackie Walorski at a White House conference.

The New York Times reported that 64 percent of Americans believed that Joe Biden was showing, through these public appearance gaffes, that he was “too old to be president.” Despite this, Biden who will turn 80 this month, stated Wednesday that he intends to run for re-election in 2024, according to Reuters.
