Donald Trump's Geographical Challenges

“Trump is reading from the notes. Trump doesn’t even know where Venezuela is. He just does not know that. He doesn’t even know where Puerto Rico is, he didn’t know that,”

Yeah, you read that correctly. President Maduro expressly accused President Donald Trump of having absolutely no knowledge on the exact location of the country in the South American continent.

Tensions have continued to rise in Venezuela with increased pressure from the U.S. The opposition leader, Juan Guaido, is trying to get millions of dollars in humanitarian aid into his country despite a blockade from President Nicolas Maduro.

The U.S has definitely picked a side, saying it will position 190 metric tons of supplies by Friday, ready to deploy throughout Venezuela, according to Mark Green, the administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

"This not an earthquake. This is not a hurricane.  This is not a tornado or a flood. This is one man and one regime imposing a dictatorial rule, imposing suffering and pain on people", said Green.

Analysing the issue at hand, the US president does seem to have some issues with his geography. During his campaign rally in Atlanta in 2016, Trump called the European country of Belgium a “beautiful city.”

Trump also made a geographical gaffe when he informed Israeli President Reuven Rivlin that he "just got back from the Middle East" during his official visit to Israel.

Trump really did ask advisers about the U.S. invading Venezuela, showing exactly how much he knew of the country located in the northern coast of the South Americas.
