usatoday.com – By Jane Onyanga-Omara – President Trump referred to a nonexistent country at a luncheon with African leaders during the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday — and Twitter wasn’t having it. Trump spoke of “Nambia” in his opening remarks, before saying “Nambia’s health system is increasingly self-sufficient” during the event, at the Palace Hotel in New York. “Nambia” doesn’t exist — the name appeared to be a merger of Namibia in southwestern Africa and Zambia, located to the northeast of Namibia. Gambia, in west Africa, was also a contender.
A White House transcript later clarified that Trump had in fact been referring to Namibia.
