Washington: US President Joe Biden He made a serious mistake when he referred to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi as “the president of Mexico” during a press conference at the White House, The Hill reports.
He made the comments during a press conference following a special counsel report that said Biden was a “well-intentioned, elderly man with a failing memory.”
Justice Department special counsel's report finds Biden guilty robert hoor “knowingly retaining and disclosing classified materials” related to military and foreign policy in Afghanistan after serving as Vice President until 2017.
In response to a question about humanitarian aid flowing through Egypt to Gaza, Biden mistakenly referred to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi as “the president of Mexico.”
Biden said, “I think as you know, initially Mexican President al-Sisi did not want to open the gate for humanitarian material to enter. I talked to him. I convinced him to open the gate.”
In the context of the report, the US President has shown a clear lack of memory. A reporter asked Biden, “How bad is your memory and can you remain president?” In response, the US President said, “My memory is so bad that I let you speak.”
Another reporter asked Biden if he thought his memory had deteriorated. Biden responded, “My memory is spot on. Take a look at what I've done since becoming president. None of you wondered if I could pass all the things I passed How did this happen? I think I've forgotten what was going on,” as reported by CNN.
Biden hit back at special counsel Robert Hur's explanation of why he was not charged. Hur saw the US President as potentially judged by the jury as a “well-intentioned, elderly man with a failing memory”.
Biden said, “I'm well-intentioned. And I'm an older man. And I know what I'm doing. I've been president — I've got this country back on its feet. I don't need them.” Is.” Recommendation,” according to the CNN report.
In his remarks, Biden said he was pleased that special counsel Robert Hur “came to the firm conclusion that no charges should be brought against me in this case.”
The US President said, “The special counsel acknowledged that I cooperated fully. I did not impose any obstruction. I did not ask for any delay.” He said he cooperated with the investigation and gave interviews for five hours over two days in October, “even though Israel was attacked by Hamas.”
This is not the first time Biden has confused the two leaders. Earlier on Sunday, Biden was seen meeting French President Emmanuel Macron with former French President Francois MitterrandWho died in 1996, The Hill reports.
The apparent glitch occurred during a campaign event in Las Vegas on Sunday. During the event, Biden recalled a meeting of the Group of Seven (G7) that he attended after being elected in 2020.
Biden said the first thing he said during the meeting was “America is back.” He further said that he received an immediate response from “Mitterrand from Germany” before correcting it to “from France”.
Biden said, “And Mitterrand from Germany – I mean, from France – looked at me and said… 'You know, what – why, how long are you back?' Biden said, according to a report by The Hill.
“And I looked at him, and…the Chancellor of Germany said, 'What would you say, Mr. President, if you took up the newspaper in the London Times tomorrow,' and the London Times said, “A thousand people burst into the House of Commons, Break the doors, two bobbies were killed to stop the election of the Prime Minister.'' What would you say?''
The White House later addressed the comments, striking out Mitterrand's name and replacing it with Macron's, The Hill reported.
