Part of being president of the United States is engaging with world leaders. As “The View” women noted, the downside of hiring an outsider is that President Donald Trump has a problem pronouncing the names of leaders most who’ve worked in politics should know. For those new presidents, there’s also a staffing factor where senior aides and State Department advisors can help liaise with American representatives to ensure there aren’t any embarrassing flubs.

According to co-host Joy Behar, Trump must have missed out on the special assistance provided by aides and staff that can help him prepare for pronunciations on his upcoming overseas trips.

Defending Trump was sometimes co-host Paula Faris, who told the panel to “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad three times fast.” As a fact check, Trump has never been required to say such names three times fast but has struggled to say it once very slowly.

“That’s not the point,” guest host Mark Cuban noted. “He has at his disposal every resource in this c…
