President Trump on Monday confused two female journalists from Finland during a press conference with the country’s president.

“Again? You’re going to give her the same one?” Trump asked President Sauli Niinistö as he took a question from one of the reporters in the crowd.

Niinistö responded to Trump, “No, she is not the same lady. They are sitting side by side.”

As she took the microphone to ask a question, the reporter responded, “We have a lot of blonde women in Finland.”

Trump was taking questions in the East Room of the White House amid the ongoing recovery effort for Tropical Storm Harvey in Texas and Louisiana.

In Trump’s defense, the two women were extremely identical. If I were in front of a crowd answering questions on a monumental level, I would have likely confused the two.

Actually, there’s a possibility that I would have confused the two in a crowd of people, even if I was not under pressure.

Here is Fox New’s coverage of the conference:
