Former President Donald Trump said during a campaign rally Saturday that he mixes up Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Republican primary opponent Nikki Haley on purpose “‘cause they’re interchangeable in my mind.”

Speaking to supporters in Richmond, Virginia, the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination claimed that he has to be careful about what he says because of how the media cover him.

“When I say, ‘Barack Hussein Obama, the president of our country,’ on the news that night, they go, ‘Donald Trump didn’t know the name of our president,’” Trump said. “‘He said it was President Obama. It’s President [Joe] Biden.’ So I have to be very, very careful.”

Trump then discussed another pair he has mixed up before, Pelosi and Haley, referring to the latter as “Birdbrain.”

“We have many of ‘em I purposely mix up, like, a name like Birdbrain,” Trump said. “Birdbrain — you know who Birdbrain is, right? Nikki? With Nancy Pelosi, I put ‘em in ‘cause they’re interchangeable in my mind.”

The former president took another shot at his primary opponent, over whom he secured three delegate victories Saturday, arguing that Pelosi is “probably a little bit smarter” than Haley.

“It’s too bad to say,” Trump said.

After sweeping delegates at the Michigan Republican Party convention and winning caucuses in Missouri and Idaho on Saturday, Trump stands at 244 delegates to Haley’s 24. There are 854 up for grabs on Super Tuesday, when 15 states, including Virginia, will hold primary elections. Haley has promised to stay in the GOP primary race until at least then, but she has yet to win one state.
