(FeaturedNews.com) – During a recent event in Las Vegas, President Biden mistakenly referred to a meeting with the late French President Francois Mitterrand, who passed away nearly three decades ago. The President was addressing the audience about the potential risks associated with a second term for former President Trump and was trying to boost support before the Democratic primary in Nevada.
In his speech, Biden intended to share an anecdote about a conversation he had with the current French President, Emmanuel Macron, during a G7 summit in England shortly after assuming office. He intended to convey a message of reassurance about America’s commitment to global partnerships by stating, “America’s back.” However, he mistakenly referred to Mitterrand, rather than Macron, and even incorrectly associated him with Germany before correcting to France.
Biden’s narrative included a hypothetical question posed by the “Chancellor of Germany,” inquiring about the U.S.’s response to a scenario where thousands stormed the British House of Commons, leading to the deaths of two police officers to prevent the election of a Prime Minister.
François Mitterrand, whom Biden mistakenly mentioned, was the President of France from 1981 to 1995 and died in 1996. This slip occurred as Biden was rallying support in Nevada, a state he narrowly won in the 2020 election, ahead of the Democratic primary where he faces minimal opposition. Nevada, known for its diverse and transient population, plays a critical role in elections due to its unpredictable voting patterns and significant political influence concentrated in its urban areas.
