Donald Trump forgot House Speaker Paul Ryan’s name during his speech in Wisconsin yesterday, twice referring to him as “Ron”.
Trump was speaking about his “Buy American, Hire American” executive order and veered into addressing NATO, the 28-country military alliance which Trump has called “obsolete” in the past.
He appeared to make a joke about how Ryan had a good excuse for not being at the speech in the Speaker of the House’s home state, because he was “with NATO”.
Trump added, “they’re way, way behind, Ron” regarding other countries’ contributions to NATO.
He later reverted to the correct name, saying: “Paul, you’re over with NATO. Get them to pay their bills, and Ron, you’ll have to work on that too.”
