President Donald Trump seemed to have respect for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is no good at democratic process, but have disdain for leaders who are influential and role models.
Recently, Erdoğan virtually removed all power from his country’s parliament
It was shameful watch Trump mispronounce Erdoğan’s name. Phonetically, Erdoğan is pronounced ehr-doe-wahn.
#Trump keeps pronouncing Turkish President Erdogan's name completely wrong. Keeps saying ErdoGONE, sounds like an idiot (as usual) 😂

It should be known that a press conference shouldn’t be a place to display ignorance, especially when it is a fellow world leader.
This Trump’s buffoonery is causing stirs on Twitter:

No one in the White House could teach Trump how to pronounce Erdogan’s name correctly?

They need to add more bullets to his one page briefings. How to pronounce world leader's names seems like a good start. https://t.co/5yTbiFEjMx

Trump loves how Erdoğan rose to autocracy, but we are stunned at the level of ignorance Trump just displayed.
