American President Donald Trump created a new African country yesterday – Nambia. And he didn’t mention this non-existent land just once, but at least twice. Watch below.

At first it was unclear if the US leader meant Namibia or Zambia when announcing that “Nambia’s health system is increasingly self-sufficient”. But a check of the White House transcript of his speech showed it was the former.

Trump has the same problem with the word Namibia as Zuma has with certain numbers.

Trump was addressing a luncheon for African leaders, including South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma, who are gathered in New York for the UN General Assembly.

The American President also congratulated the gathered African leaders, saying” “I have so many friends going to your countries, trying to get rich… I congratulate you, they’re spending a lot of money.”

Trump also revealed he would be sending Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the UN to Africa to discuss avenues of conflict, resolution and prevention.
