Biden account deletes post after misidentifying leader met during Vietnam trip

President Joe Biden's X account (formerly Twitter) deleted a post that misidentified Vietnam's president.

The Monday post thanked Vietnamese President Vo Van Thuong for his visit, but the picture was of the country's National Assembly chairman.

The message

"President Vo Van Thuong, thank you for such a productive meeting," Biden's tweet said.

"This partnership is about unleashing our peoples’ potential and, with it, a range of incredible possibilities," the president continued.

Not the first time

"The social media blunder is not the first time White House staffers have had to scramble to delete erroneous or errant tweets. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was mocked last month for posting a tweet suggesting that she once ran for president of the United States," the New York Post reported.

“Investing in America means investing in ALL of America,” read Jean-Pierre’s since-deleted post on X. “When I ran for President, I made a promise that I would leave no part of the country behind.”

Other blunders

Biden also revealed during a press conference in Vietnam that he would only be calling on the five reporters on the list he was given.

"I'm just following orders here. Uh-uh... Press Service, is there anyone who didn't ask? No, I'm not calling you to the microphone. I was told there would be 5 questions," he said.

The multiple blunders during the president's short trip to Vietnam as part of his G20 Summit trip to India continue to add to concerns about Biden's health during his run for a second term.

A growing number of Democratic leaders are also worried that Biden's age is making him a vulnerable candidate in a likely rematch against former President Donald Trump.

It's unlikely that another Democrat will suddenly emerge, however, meaning the left will be forced to support Biden despite any concerns as he seeks to win a second term in the White House. If he wins, his second term will end when he is 86 years old.
