Bloviating billionaire Donald Trump’s attempt at a foreign policy on Wednesday is receiving some well-deserved mockery for his gaffe in butchering the pronunciation of the African country of Tanzania, which he should have pronounced as “Tan-ZA-knee-a.”
The embarrassing gaffe reached the levels of the White House, with even Obama spokesman Josh Earnest having a field day with the bungling.
“Apparently, the phonetics aren’t included on the teleprompter,” Earnest joked about the flub.

"Tanzania" is where the Tasmanian Devil comes from.

@realDonaldTrump: You sounded like you took a valium before hand. And it's Tanzania. I learned that in grade school. @LiveFreedomOrDi
