The European GAFFE Factory Outlet
Joe Biden called the Royal Air Force the ‘RFA’ while addressing US military personnel based in Britain at RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk during his first-ever speech as US President on UK soil last night.
The gaffe came after the 78-year-old President declared that the Anglo-American alliance, forged during the Second World War, was the ‘strongest military and political alliance in the history of the world’.
Speaking to US troops, Mr Biden said: ‘These partnerships have been hardened in the fire of war. Generations of Americans and service members fought them. Like the original Bloody Hundredth, and those RFA pilots.’
