Belgium is a “beautiful city”, according to Donald Trump
The difference between Belgium and Brussels is still unclear for Donald Trump. The Republican presidential candidate yesterday in a speech called the country a “beautiful city”, and it's not the first time that he shows a grave lack of geographical knowledge, write numerous international and local media.
“Belgium is a beautiful city,” Trump said on Wednesday during a party rally in Atlanta, Georgia. It is not the first time Trump has difficulty with the difference between Belgium and its capital. After the terror attacks of 22 March, Trump told Matt Lauer of NBC's Today, “Belgium is not the Belgium that you and I knew, Matt, from 20 years ago, which was one of the most beautiful cities and one of the safest cities in the world. Belgium is a horror show right now.”
Trump previously referred to Brussels as “a hellhole” during a March interview with Fox News.
