Donald Trump called Ukraine "the Ukraine" during a White House meeting with Ukraine's President, Petro Poroshenko. “It's a great honor to be with President Poroshenko of the Ukraine,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office, “a place that we've all been very much involved in.” Adding "the" to the name is aggravating to Ukraine's people due to awkward geopolitical implications.
