Damn, that guy is ignorant.
Which is OK. The world embraces ignorant guys. If one is completely pragmatic, it is possible to argue that the world needs ignorant guys.
But maybe not as President of the USA.
“President Donald Trump once again displayed a fundamental misunderstanding of the very makeup of one of the United States’ closest allies, suggesting of Great Britain: ‘they used to call it England.'”
- They still call England “England,” those tricky bastards!
- “Great Britain” refers to the island that includes England, Scotland and Wales.
- The “United Kingdom” is the name of the sovereign nation which includes all of the above plus Northern Ireland.
- The Channel Islands and the Isle of Man are part of separate arrangements, distinct from the U.K.
