Biden skips say­ing tech fir­m’s name dur­ing APEC speech: ‘Not gonna even try’

Pres­i­dent Joe Biden refused to attempt nam­ing an unknown tech firm dur­ing a San Fran­cis­co speech.
Speak­ing at the week­long Asia-Pacif­ic Eco­nom­ic Coop­er­a­tion forum, Biden talked up the U.S. econ­o­my and the large com­pa­nies that sup­port it, such as Apple, Boe­ing, and Visa, say­ing “they make our region more resilient, make it more secure.”

He then start­ed nam­ing a few oth­er firms before giv­ing up on one that was too per­plex­ing.
“Lead­ing tech com­pa­nies, like Anthrop­ic and, I’m going to mis­pro­nounce — I’m not gonna even try,” Biden said to laugh­ter from the audi­ence. “It’s bet­ter not to try and not mis­pro­nounce than try and mis­pro­nounce.”

“The point is, small- and medi­um-sized busi­ness star­tups are get­ting in on the action as well,” he con­tin­ued. It is unclear which com­pa­ny the pres­i­dent intend­ed to name.
