Cape Town - President Donald Trump once again became the subject of scrutiny, laughter and confusion on social media after he mispronounced 'Namibia' during the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

The president referred to the southwestern country of Africa, as 'Nambia', while praising its health system which he said was 'increasingly efficient'.

The White House later stated that Trump, in fact, was talking about Namibia. 

Trump mentioned Nambia twice during the session attended by leaders of several African nations that included Ghana, Namibia and Uganda.

As one would expect, thousands took to Twitter to make fun of Trump's faux pax.

It is not the first time Tweeps had fun at the expense of the US president's error.

In late May this year, Trump tweeted 'Despite the constant negative press covfefe'. (Many thought 'covfefe' meant coverage, in case you were wondering.) The tweet was later deleted.
