Mitterrand instead of Macron: Biden's promise sends France to…

The incumbent and former president do not owe each other anything when it comes to the Hopalas. The election campaign has not actually begun yet.

US President Joe Biden has made another infamous gaffe, confusing French President Emmanuel Macron with one of his predecessors – François Mitterrand. In a campaign speech on Sunday in Las Vegas, he spoke about the G7 meeting he attended in 2021 after being elected. “America is back,” he added. “Mitterand looked at me, I mean France, and said: How long have you been back in the country?” François Mitterrand held office from 1981 to 1995, and has been dead for 28 years.

Biden is 81 years old, and his age is a constant issue in the election campaign. The Democrat's regular slips of the tongue and small errors at public events provide plenty of political attack. But former President Donald Trump, who is again running for president with Republicans, sometimes seems a little confused. Recently, the 77-year-old appeared to have confused his rival Nikki Haley with Democrat Nancy Pelosi, the former Speaker of the US House of Representatives. According to US media reports, Trump falsely claimed that Haley was responsible for security during the attacks on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. Haley did not hold any government position in 2021.

Primary election campaigns may soon become a formality

Anyone who wants to become a presidential candidate in the United States must first win internal party primaries. Among the Republican candidates, only Trump and former US Ambassador to the United Nations Haley remain. It is clear that Trump dominates the Republican race. Everything currently points to a new version of the election campaign between Biden and Trump, who have already competed against each other in the 2020 presidential election. (APA/DPA)
