President Joe Biden’s latest gaffe is the latest of many mistakes he’s made publicly since taking office.

During a speech Friday, Biden read what was seemingly meant to be a direction out loud off a teleprompter. The president was meant to be speaking on actions the administration planned to take in light of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. Vice President Kamala Harris and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra were with him at the time.

“End of quote. Repeat the line,” Biden said.

In June, Biden got his countries mixed up during a NATO summit in Spain.

“Some of the American press will remember when I got a phone call from the leader of Finland saying could he come and see me,” Biden said. “He came the next day and said, ‘Will you support my joining, my country joining NATO?’ We got on the telephone, and he suggested we call the leader of, of Switzerland — Switzerland, my goodness. I’m getting really anxious here about expanding NATO — of Sweden.”

Throughout the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, Biden has made key mistakes that teetered on the edge of threats, particularly toward Russian President Vladimir Putin. Biden called Putin a “war criminal” in front of a group of reporters in March, later going further and insisting that the Russian leader “cannot remain in power.”

Later, months into the conflict, Biden asserted, contrary to U.S. policy, that the United States would involve its military if a similar conflict arose between China and Taiwan.

“You didn’t want to get involved in the Ukraine conflict militarily for obvious reasons. Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?” a reporter asked Biden in May.

“Yes,” Biden said.

“You are?” the reporter asked again.

“That’s the commitment we made,” Biden said.
