WATCH: Biden Twice Confuses Gaza With Ukraine

March 1, 2024

President Joe Biden on Friday confused Gaza with Ukraine in announcing the United States would be airdropping aid into Gaza, in the latest gaffe from the commander in chief.

"In the coming days, we're gonna join with our friends in Jordan and others in providing airdrops of additional food and supplies into Ukraine and seek to continue to open up other avenues into Ukraine, including the possibility of a marine corridor to deliver large amounts of humanitarian assistance," Biden said in a press conference with Italian prime minister Giorgia Meloni.

Biden then correctly identified Gaza as the target for the aid.

"In addition to expanding deliveries by land, as I said, we're gonna insist that Israel facilitate more trucks and more routes to get more and more people the help they need," he continued. "No excuses, because the truth is: Aid flowing to Gaza is nowhere nearly enough now. It's nowhere nearly enough. Innocent lives are on the line and children's lives are on the line, and we won't stand by and let—until we get more aid in there. We should be getting hundreds of trucks in, not just several."

National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters later that Biden was referring to Gaza.

This is not the first time Biden has been confused when discussing foreign policy. Last month, he said three times in one week that he had spoken at a 2021 meeting to world leaders who had passed away years earlier.

The same week, Special Counsul Robert Hur released his report that revealed Biden during his October interview with investigators could not remember when his son, Beau, died or when he was vice president. The night of the report's publication, Biden held a press conference in which he confused Egypt with Mexico.
