Colombia — located in South America — is a “neighbor” of the United States, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The woman second in line to the presidency hosted Colombia President Iván Duque Márquez at the Capitol today and the two spoke before their meeting.
“I welcome as a friend and neighbor in our hemisphere who can recognize the importance of the U.S.-Colombia relationship and our commitment to, uh, having better relationships throughout Latin America and the western hemisphere,” she said.
Maybe she thought he was from the District of Columbia?
Pelosi’s struggled with geography before.
Shortly after President Trump was inaugurated, she complained that he wasn’t visiting foreign countries in alphabetical order.
“I thought it was unusual for the President of the United States to go to Saudi Arabia first. Saudi Arabia!” Pelosi said in May 2017.
“It wasn’t even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia.”
The Democrat leader contrasted Trump’s visit with George W. Bush first visiting Mexico, and Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama visiting Canada first.
“Our friends and neighbors,” she said. “What was the decision-making process to go to Saudi Arabia first? That is a question that I have,” she said.
If Trump were to begin visiting foreign countries by alphabetical order, he would first visit Afghanistan, followed by Albania, Algeria, Andorra and Angola.
