Biden’s reservation offended the British military

US President Joe Biden during a speech to the US military at the Mildenhall base in the UK made a mistake in his welcoming speech, which the British media considered an oversight and tactlessness.

Speaking about the close cooperation between the armies of the United States and Great Britain, Biden mispronounced the abbreviation “Royal Air Force.” Instead of “RAF,” the American leader said “RFA.” The transcript of his speech is published on the official website of the White House with the incorrect version crossed out and corrected in parentheses.

Biden’s “RFA” may, depending on the context, be translated as an abbreviation of “Auxiliary Royal Navy” or denote an acronym for an obscene expression.

This is not the first time Biden has made a mistake in his words. For example, in a speech dedicated to the fight against coronavirus and vaccination, the president confused the number of months that have passed since the beginning of the year. Biden also confused the words “escalation” and “vaccination” and mispronounced the last name of President Vladimir Putin.
