Trump surprised with words about the proximity of the United States and Italy since the time of Ancient Rome

The American leader noted the cultural connection between the two countries since ancient Roman times, which caused the bewilderment of the public.

US President Donald Trump, at a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Sergio Mattarella, announced the cultural ties between the two countries “since ancient Rome.” The words of the American leader, which was published on October 16 on Twitter by the White House, aroused the bewilderment of users.

“The United States and Italy are united by a cultural and political community dating back thousands of years since the time of Ancient Rome,” the American leader said.

One of the users of the social network was surprised at Trump's historical illiteracy.

“A history lesson: Ancient Rome began in the VIII century BC and collapsed by the V century AD. The United States adopted the Declaration of Independence in 1776. I miss the president, who reads and knows history,” the presidential subscriber said.

At the same time, there were those who considered Trump's words a metaphor that emphasized the legal connection of the laws of ancient Roman laws with the American constitution.

Social networks laugh at Trump's Twitter post.

Trump had previously made a gross historical error by saying that the army “captured the airports” of the British during the American Revolutionary War in the late 1700s.
