White House claims Scotland is NOT part of UK in embarrassing Twitter blunder as Trump visits his Turnberry golf resort

mirror.co.uk – By Neil Murphy and Paul Ward – Twitter users helpfully pointed out that Scotland has been part of the United Kingdom since 1707 – White House officials made an embarrassing blunder after appearing to suggest that Scotland isn’t part of the United Kingdom. A tweet from the official Oval Office account said: “Today, @ realDonaldTrump and @ FLOTUS had tea with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle before departing the U.K.”

Twitter users were quick to point out that the Trump was visiting Scotland on Friday – indicating that the president’s team could benefit from a geography lesson. Twitter user Emma Kennedy wrote: “He’s still in UK, idiots.” While another explained: “Dear White House, England, Wales, Scotland, + Northern Ireland = U.K. England, Wales, + Scotland = Great Britain. England = England. # BuyAnEncyclopedia.”
