To be fair, Belgium is much smaller than most US states.
still, this is a 57 state moment, and one that is maybe an actual error on the part of Trump. (Nobody here would actually bet the rent check that Harvard law grad Trump truly believed there were 57 states as he worked backwards from 50 in his math and didn't carry the 1.
The more he talks, the more we're seeing Trump make these little mistakes and verbal mis-steps. The way he didn't know what the nuclear triad was... it reminded me of Palin not knowing what the Bush Doctrine was... one can spend a week on WIKI and have a pretty solid basis in things like triad or bush doctrine or simple
Trump never mis-speaks/fumbles his words, let's be honest. Every phrase is prepared and his timing and enunciation are perfect, all of the time. When he steps in shit, it's usually because he's dumb on something.
