wouldn't that be "transcontinental"? or did we run a railroad to south America?

US President Barack Obama’s latest gaffe came Thursday, when he hailed America’s historic building of ‘the Intercontinental Railroad’

“We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad,” Obama said to a crowd of Ohio supporters

The problem is, America built the first transcontinential rairoad, which crossed North America from the east to west coasts.

This is not the first time Obama has shown he does not know the difference between the prefixes “inter” and “trans.” He made the same mistake during a radio interview on February 16, 2011.
