Donald Trump has a history of messing up while reading off teleprompters, this time it was no different. Trump seemed to have a hard time reading the word “Tanzania,” which is an African nation.
During his speech, Trump pronounced Tanzania as “Tan-ZAY-nee-uh,” instead of its actual pronunciation “Tan-zu-KNEE-uh.
In the clip below you can see Trump completely butcher the pronunciation of the country.

Of course, Twitter users had to respond to Trump’s embarrassing moment.
Trump just made Tanzania rhyme with Insania. https://t.co/gTt8EzvJ1y

Does the president's teleprompter not have pronouncers in the text?
He just pronounced Tanzania: Tan-ZA-nia.
Perhaps a neighbor of Nambia?

@realDonaldTrump Ummmm that's not how you pronounce Tanzania. But it doesn't matter. Your zealot supporters tell me you're "smart".

Trump just invented another African country: Tanzania!
