A blunder has made by the United States of America President Donald Trump who thought Nepal and Bhutan were both parts of India.
Also, he had been corrected at a briefing where he said that he knew that Nepal and Bhutan were in India.
Not only this but, he also pronounced the name of Nepal and Bhutan as ‘nipple’ and ‘button’.
Well, this shocking fact has come out when a TIME magazine correspondent wrote about the details in a news article which was published on Tuesday.
Here’s what the passage read:
"...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."
Reportedly, this briefing was held in 2017 before the Trump’s meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Even Trump had also mispronounced the names of Nepal and Bhutan as ‘nipple’ and ‘button’ while looking at the map of South Asia.
The whole information was also aired on the CNN. TIME’s John Walcott, the author who wrote about the briefing revealed to the anchor Brooke Baldwin. She was amused to hear that and said, ‘Wait, seriously, that's what he said?’
Brooke took to Twitter and shared a video with a caption, 'John Walcott @TIME shares his extraordinary reporting out today “'Willful Ignorance.' Inside President Trump's Troubled Intelligence Briefings. Added bonus: how Trump first pronounced Nepal (“nipple”) and Bhutan (“button”).'

Initially, I was surprised only at how Donald Duck could be elected president, but now I'm starting to wonder what made him a 'business man' in the first place!— Shakar Bhattarai (@ShakarBhattarai) February 5, 2019
