STRATFORD, Conn. — Nate Seltzer, a 5-year-old from Stratford, made a name for himself in a March visit to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show” for his amazing geography skills — and for his snarky joke about President Donald Trump.

Ellen DeGeneres welcomed Nate back on Monday, May 1, as he reveals that he wants to be a grocery store manager when he grows up because he "loves food." (If you missed the show, you ca watch above.)

Nate, who has an encyclopedic knowledge of geography, is obsessed with maps and geography.

In his March appearance on "Ellen," to cheers from the crowd, Nate revealed his favorite state ("Missouri — because it starts with M"), correctly identified a series of countries and flags from flash cards, and explained his hand-drawn map of the world and why he placed the president inside a certain country.

"It's really funny," Nate whispers to Ellen before revealing, "It's Russia."
