At a Rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Trump Can’t Figure Out The difference Between Great Britain, United Kingdom And England

President Donald Trump addressed a campaign rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on Thursday. The President says he has  “great respect” for U.K. ; U.S.A.’s closest ally ― but got mixed up with the name.

“I have great respect for the U.K. ― United Kingdom ― great respect,” Trump said. “People call it Britain. They call it Great Britain. They used to call it England ― different parts.”

The president seemed confused by the difference between the U.K., Great Britain and England ― suggesting that the names can be used interchangeably and that one of the names is perhaps out of date.

But the country of England is still called England.

U.S.A. and United Kingdom Special Relationship

Great Britain (also known as Britain) refers to the island made up of the countries England, Scotland and Wales, while the U.K. is a sovereign state comprised of four countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Trump recently returned from an official trip to the U.K. last month in which he visited England and Scotland. He even played golf at his own golf resort in Scotland during his visit.

The president’s arrival in the U.K. was met with protests in several areas, with tens of thousands of demonstrators showing up in London.
