Before analyzing the crisis between Russia and Ukraine, Biden swiftly addressed his confusion between Kherson and Falluja.
On Wednesday at the White House, President Biden flubbed his remarks and confused the Iraqi city of Fallujah with the Ukrainian city of Kherson.
During his prediction of whether or not a compromise between Russia and Ukraine would emerge before winter, the president made a mistake.
Biden then clarified, “I mean from the City of Kherson.” He was referring to the situation in Iraq and Syria, not Ukraine.
He continued by saying he hoped both sides would “lick their wounds” during the winter and consider whether or not to reach an agreement.
That’s going to happen, Biden said. “Aside from the possibility that… As for what they’ll do, I have no idea.”
A few hours after Russia’s announcement that it was pulling out of Kherson, the president made his remarks.
