Apparently Donald Trump Doesn't know the Difference Between the Quds Force and the Kurds

I don't usually comment on US politics, but :"Donald Trump Stumbles and Bristles During Foreign Policy Interview."

Quds and Kurds? Same thing. Hasan Nasrallah? Nah. Ayman al-Zawahiri? Nah. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi? Nah. (Maybe he knows him as Caliph Ibrahim?) Qasim Suleimani? Nah.

He does say he hasn't had occasion to meet these people yet. I guess it would be more worrisome if he had.
