Someone get Donald Trump a map!
Less than a week after the former U.S. president confused Hungary and Turkey — calling Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán the leader of Turkey — Trump got Hungary’s borders all wrong.
“Did anybody ever hear of Viktor Orbán? He’s the head of Hungary. Hungary fronts on both Ukraine and Russia,” Trump said on Sunday during a rally in Sioux City, Iowa.
While this time Trump did match the leader to the correct country, Hungary does not border Russia. The countries are about 1,000 kilometers apart at their closest point.
This was not the first time Trump has implied Hungary borders Russia, as he made the same mistake at a rally last week in New Hampshire.
The Trump-Orbán love story is not a new one, but the relationship has been blossoming of late amid Orbán’s isolation on the European stage.
On Sunday, Trump called Orbán a “very powerful player” and a “very tough guy,” praising the Hungarian leader for not allowing migrants into his country.
In turn, Orbán has endorsed Trump’s campaign, even sporting the Republican candidate’s trademark merch online.
Despite their friendship, Trump seems to struggle knowing exactly where Hungary is. But Orbán shouldn’t take it personally — Trump’s geography gaffes are not limited to Hungary. As he took to the stage on Sunday, Trump thanked the people of Sioux Falls. Except he was not in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, but in Sioux City, Iowa.
