President Trump's 'Nambia' remarks at U.N. prompt Twitter scorn https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2017/09/21/president-trump-nambia/688012001/ President Trump referred to a nonexistent country at a luncheon with African leaders during the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday — and Twitter wasn’t having it. Trump spoke of “Nambia” in his opening remarks, before saying “Nambia’s health system is increasingly self-sufficient” during the event, at the Palace Hotel in New York. "Nambia" doesn't exist — the name appeared to be a merger of Namibia in southwestern Africa and Zambia, located to the northeast of Namibia. Gambia, in west Africa, was also a contender. A White House transcript later clarified that Trump had in fact been referring to Namibia.
