Speaking at a reelection campaign in Ohio, US President Donald Trump mispronounced Thailand as ‘Thighland’. Though the president immediately corrected himself, the faux pas immediately went viral on social media.

Trump was speaking during an event at Whirlpool Corporation facility in Clyde, Ohio.

“Four, five years ago, this place was a disaster. In 2017, Whirlpool won relief from the ITC (US International Trade Commission) once again. Once more, your foreign competitors moved their factories to prevent a level playing field, and to avoid liability, hifting production to Thighland, and to Vietnam,” he said. He repeated, correcting himself, “to Thailand and to Vietnam”.

Twitter user @mmpadellan tweeted a video of the speech. Watch it here:

Earlier, Trump tweeted a video of his supporters in Ohio cheering for him. He said, “WE will WIN Ohio even bigger than we did in 2016 — MAGA is stronger than ever before!”

MAGA, or ‘Make America Great Again’ is a campaign slogan that is extensively used by Trump and his supporters.
