President Trump doesn't know what Great Britain is, social media mocks him with memes and jokes
President Donald Trump yet again gave a chance to the Twitterati to school him — this time in geography lessons. The social media erupted in memes after the Republican president appeared to not know the difference between the United Kingdom, Great Britain and England during a political rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Trump, while speaking at the rally on Thursday night, said: "I have great respect for the U.K., United Kingdom, great respect,” said Trump. “People call it Britain. They call it Great Britain. They used to call it England, different parts."
Shortly after Trump's statement, Twitter was keen to point out that Great Britain consists of England, Scotland and Wales, while the United Kingdom consists of all these three countries and Northern Island. The Twitter users also noted how the country of England is still called England, despite what the American president claimed.
Trump, during an interview with The Sun last month, had said that he does not hear the word "England" as much as he should.
"You don’t hear the word England as much as you should. I miss the name England. You understand that? I think England is a beautiful name," Trump had said when he was presented with an England shirt.
