On Monday, Trump held a public rally in India, which got him a lot of attention—but probably not in the way he expected.

Trump took the stage after Prime Minister Modi. Speaking to a crowd of 100,000 people, Trump told them that India “will always hold a very special place in our hearts,” and according to the New York Times, said, “Trump loves India.”

However, his appraisal of the country couldn’t stop BBC News India from noticing—and counting—how many times he mispronounced Indian words.

Here are some of the many things he struggled to say:

1. He mispronounced the name of the city where the rally was being held:

2. He botched the name of an Indian philosopher:

3. He messed up the name of ancient Hindu religious texts:

4. He mispronounced some of the names of India’s biggest cricket stars:

5. He couldn’t keep their attention

It’s no surprise that much of the crowd started to leave half-way through his speech.

Trump ended his speech by saying, “God bless India, God bless the United States of America – we love you, we love you very much.” Indeed, this will be a speech India will always remember.

It wasn’t just Indian people that recognized Trump’s cluelessness. Americans were pointing out his mispronunciations as well.

7. Then the Daily Show took a jab

Trevor Noah put together a compilation of the mispronunciations. He also reminded everyone that Trump “can’t pronounce English words either.”

8. And Stephen Colbert took a turn

Colbert also poked fun at Trump’s struggle with Indian words, but the Late Show host also managed to work in a joke about the First Daughter as well, saying “Now he knows what it’s like to work in one of Ivanka’s factories.”


9. The Late Late Show has jokes too
