US President Joe Biden wrongly claimed that his son Beau Biden died in Iraq after confusing the Middle-Eastern country with Ukraine, during a speech on inflation in Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday.
“Inflation is a worldwide problem right now because of a war in Iraq, and the impact on oil and which Russia is doing. I mean, the excuse me, the war in and Ukraine” Biden said. “I was thinking of Iraq because that’s where my son died.”
Beau Biden served in Iraq with the Delaware Army National Guard in 2008, but died of brain cancer at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in 2015.
