He once called the Belgian capital city Brussels “a hellhole,” but U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has changed his tune.
“Belgium is a beautiful city,” Trump said during a rally in Atlanta, Georgia Wednesday.
It should be noted that Belgium is a country, not a city.
Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential hopeful, did not miss a beat, tweeting a video of the gaffe with the text: “A message from your possible next president on: Geography.”
In January, Trump said living in Brussels was like living in “a hellhole” because of the lack of “assimilation” of the Muslim population.
“Go to Brussels, go to Paris … There’s something going on and it’s not good. Where they want sharia law … there has to be some assimilation,” Trump had said.
