Answering a question about Washington’s participation in ensuring security at the Kabul airport, the American leader said that the American authorities were in constant contact with the leadership of the Taliban in the capital of Afghanistan and Daho, the capital of Qatar. The White House publication clarified that the president meant Doha.
In addition, Biden could not remember one of the questions. By that time, he had already commented on the part of the journalist’s remark. Still, he asked the interlocutor to repeat his words, admitting that he had forgotten the topic of conversation.
The head of the White House has repeatedly made mistakes in the names of countries and the surnames of presidents. In particular, in one of his speeches, he confused Libya and Syria, in another — Iraq and Iran, in the third — Barack Obama and Donald Trump.
