Others have pointed out that this is not an uncommon issue, and that many Americans in particular struggle with geography and have a poor understanding of other countries and cultures. Some have also noted that this lack of knowledge and understanding can lead to harmful stereotypes and misunderstandings.

A netizen said: “What can you expect when a congressman supposedly with an education from harvard cant differentiate singapore & china; doesnt seem too far off if their masses cant either”

This incident sparked a conversation among other users, with some expressing frustration at the widespread lack of geographical knowledge in the US. One user humorously suggested that Americans might mistake Singapore for Shanghai due to their limited understanding of geography. Another user shared their own experience of having encountered similar misconceptions about Singapore, attributing them to a lack of exposure to different cultures and a tendency to rely on stereotypes.

The conversation also touched on the broader issue of ignorance and prejudice, with some users expressing concern about the impact of these attitudes on international relations. One user pointed out that the recent TikTok controversy, in which a US senator questioned the CEO about his ties to China, was a prime example of this phenomenon.
