WATCH: Trump Calls Thailand ‘Thighland’ Just Days After He Mispronouncing ‘Yosemite’
President Donald Trump mispronounced Thailand as “Thighland” on Thursday during a speech in Clyde, Ohio, only a few days after he incorrectly pronounced “Yosemite” during a speech at the White House.
The speech was touting his “America First” policies, which he says has brought back the manufacturing industries in the United States – including to Clyde – from foreign competitors like Thailand.
“Four or five years ago this place was a disaster,” Trump said. “Once more, your foreign competitors moved their factories to prevent a level playing field, and to avoid liability.”
His mispronunciation happened when he was pointing out the two examples of foreign competitors.
