Watch Trump Absolutely Butcher Pronouncing Thailand


Social media users poked fun at President Donald Trump after he mispronounced Thailand as “Thighland” at a campaign event on Thursday.

The blunder occurred at a Whirlpool plant in Ohio, according to the New York Daily News.


In his speech, Trump spoke about how the American manufacturer’s competitors had shifted their “production to ‘Thighland’ and to Vietnam.”

However, he repeated himself and corrected his pronunciation of the Southeast Asian country.

“Thailand and Vietnam, two places that… I like their leaders very much.”

Social media users were quick to catch the slip-up.

Some people became worried about how Trump will pronounce other geographical locations.

Trump’s mispronunciation of certain locations has been a hot topic. On Tuesday, he made headlines for having difficulty to pronounce California’s Yosemite National Park during a White House address.


Trump was also criticized for the typo he made in his tweet on Monday where he tweeted “Frorida” instead of Florida, Pop Culture reported. One user also pointed out that the R and L keys are not close to each other on a QWERTY keyboard.
