President Donald Trump believed that the newly elected Prime Minister of New Zealand was Justin Trudeau's wife.
New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was worried she may have caused a "diplomatic incident" after reportedly claiming that Donald Trump mistook her for Justin Trudeau's wife. Canadian leader Trudeau was supposedly making the introductions as Ardern attended her first major forum since taking office last month when Trump mixed-up the 37-year-old with the Canadian leader's partner Sophie. However, Ardern said she regretted the gossip getting out and played down the story after reporters seized on it.
Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister of New Zealand:
This is Justin Trudeau's spouse, Sophie Trudeau.
