President Trump confused two female Finnish journalists at a joint press conference on Monday.
“Again? You’re going to give her the same one?” Trump asked President Sauli Niinistö as he took a question from one of the reporters in the crowd.

“No, she is not the same lady,” Niinistö replied. “They are sitting side by side.”
As she took the microphone to ask a question, the reporter responded, “We have a lot of blonde women in Finland.”
