Whoops! Trump makes embarrassing mix-up of two leaders

That's a bit embarrassing.

The US president is currently at the all important G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, but it looks like he isn’t quite occupied enough to keep himself out of trouble on social media as he mixed up two world leaders in an embarrassing kerfuffle. 

Yesterday, Donald Trump posted a picture to Instagram of himself meeting with Singapore’s Prime Minster Lee Hsien Loong, but it was captioned as being a meeting with Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo.

It’s not clear whether Trump is personally responsible for the post, or whether it’s a member of his staff, but either way it’s quite an embarrassment, and one that was of course picked up very quickly by followers. 

As you can see below, the post has since been corrected, although not before a screenshot was taken and shared all over the internet. 

Some followers were angry about the mistake, while others found it rather funny. 

“Nasty mistake! Such a shame for not getting the names of such prominent people correctly. Fact check please!”, wrote one Instagram commenter.

“INDONESIA IS NOT SINGAPORE,” wrote another. 

It’s the kind of mistake that would leave anyone red-faced, let alone if you’re the President of the United States and make the mistake on a hugely public scale. 

Have you ever made an embarrassing mix-up like this?
