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.
Derek Chauvin is facing third-degree murder and manslaughter charges after video surfaced showing him kneeling on Floyd’s neck for for more than 8 1/2 minutes while he pleaded for his life.
“Her utmost sympathy lies with [Floyd’s] family, with his loved ones and with everyone who is grieving this tragedy,” the statement read in part. “While Ms. Chauvin has no children from her current marriage, she respectfully requests that her children, her elder parents, and her extended family be given safety and privacy during this difficult time.”
Kellie Chauvin was born in Laos in 1974 during a time of war. In 1977, her family fled to safety in Thailand, where they lived in a refugee camp, The Associated Press reported. In 2018, she was crowned Mrs. Minnesota.
