Joe Biden twice confused Italy with France at a marketing campaign reception days after his disastrous presidential debate with Donald Trump.

The US president referenced claims that Trump referred to America’s battle lifeless as “losers” and “suckers” when he cancelled a go to to Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, close to Paris, in 2018.

However, Mr Biden mistakenly stated on Saturday that the cemetery was situated in Italy – remarks later corrected on the official White House transcript.

“I told him how he had called the veterans who had given their lives in a cemetery in Italy [France] – he wouldn’t go to the cemetery, and – because he said they’re a bunch of ‘suckers’ and ‘losers’”, Mr Biden stated Saturday at a marketing campaign reception in East Hampton, New York.

“Well, our son was one of those people – not in Italy [France] but in Iraq — and he died.”

The declare that Mr Biden’s son, Beau, died in Iraq can also be disputed – he died of most cancers years after getting back from Iraq, however Mr Biden maintains that his dying was linked to his publicity to burn pits.
