In a major blunder White House refers to Jinping as the President of Taiwan
Call it the Trump affect or something else, but major anomalies have been emerging from the White House lately. In a more recent goof-up, the White House media office mislabeled the leaders of China and Japan after President Donald Trump's bilateral meeting with both leaders.

The press statement issued by the White House after Trump's meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping referred to him as the "President of the Republic of China" which is the official name for Taiwan.

China does not recognise Taiwan's sovereignty and considers the country as its own part.

Jinping and Trump had met on Saturday at Hamburg for more than 90 minutes on the sidelines of the G20 Summit.

However, this was not the only faux pas that the White House made. Earlier on the same day, after the bilateral meeting between Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Donald Trump, the official White House statement referred to the leader as "President Abe of Japan".

Previously too, in another noticeable gaffe, President Donald Trump's official Instagram had mistakenly mentioned Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Hsein Loong as Joko Widodo, the President of Indonesia.
