One day after Vice President Joseph R. Biden said he wanted the “nation of Africa” to prosper, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi appears to have deleted a tweet that called the continent a country.

“Honored to join my colleagues & @OfficialCBC at #USAfrica Leaders Summit to discuss the valuable relationship between our two countries,” she tweeted, then deleted Wednesday, Twitchy reported.
