England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, UK, Britain And Great Britain

Donald Trump's grasp of most things is, to be polite, limited but geography is especially lacking in the orange one, due to his little fingers not being able to turn the page on the atlas or something but he has surpassed even himself while talking about his recent visit to the UK at a rally to his fellow deplorables in Pennsylvania.
Addressing his fellow racists and fruitcakes he begins an anecdote by saying: 'I have great respect for the UK, United Kingdom. Great respect. People call it Britain, they call it Great Britain, they used to call it England'.
That would be England the country being confused with Great Britain which includes Scotland and Wales and then he threw in the UK which includes all the above along with Northern Ireland. It really isn't that hard but maybe he was talking pre-1707 before we were all unified.
Anyway, fake news as England has never been called Britain or Great Britain it's always been called, surprise surprise, England but now those of us in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the UK, Britain and Great Britain can all agree what a colossal moron the idiotic man is all at the same time.
