President Joe Biden caused some confusion at the end of the speech he gave Friday at the National Safer Communities Summit in Connecticut.
Biden spoke to gun safety advocates and survivors of gun violence for about 30 minutes Friday afternoon at the University of Hartford and ended his speech with the phrase “Alright? God save the Queen, man.”
“God Save The Queen” began trending on Twitter soon after with many addressing their own confusion and criticizing the gaffe.
Many were questioning whether Biden referenced Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-serving monarch, who died in September. Biden attended the queen’s funeral on Sept. 19.
