Twitter users got a kick out of President Donald Trump’s latest verbal blunder ― although the citizens of Thailand might not be happy.
On Thursday, Trump spoke at a Whirlpool factory in Clyde, Ohio, where he griped about corporations sending jobs overseas to countries like “Thigh-land” and Vietnam.
As the video clip shows, the president quickly corrected himself.

As you might expect, the verbal goof amused many Twitter users, especially since it came just days after Trump mispronounced the name of Yosemite National Park as “Yo-Semites.”

Since he can no longer give talks or speeches or convey information of any kind- ( other than to insult, rail or boast ) his aides write things for him- but clearly his mind is not computing what he reads https://t.co/PfpibGxGov
