Donald Trump Misspeaks, Calls U.S. A Company Instead Of A Country

President Donald Trump had a bit of a slip-up during a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday.

When a German reporter asked Trump about his isolationism and suggested his “America first” policies could weaken the European Union, Trump said, “The United States has been treated very, very unfairly by many countries over the years and that’s going to stop.”

He then went on: “We’re a very powerful company — country,” catching his mistake.

In which Trump says "company" instead of "country"

After the brief misstep, Trump continued:

“We’re a very strong, very strong country, we’ll soon be at a level perhaps we’ve never been before. Our military is going to be strengthened ― it’s been depleted. But I am a trader, I am a fair trader, I am a trader that wants to see good for everybody worldwide. But I am not an isolationist but any stretch of the imagination.”
