President Donald Trump has made America the laughing stock of the world three times.
The first instance was while he was still on Air Force One. A reporter mentioned Chinese President Xi Jinping’s “successful run,” and Trump was somehow offended by this, saying “excuse me, so am I.” He then lectured the press on all of his “accomplishments” instead of talking about relationships with Asian countries—the very purpose of his trip.
Then there was his meeting with Japanese business leaders. Trump praised their work, telling them: ““We love it when you build cars – if you’re a Japanese firm, we love it.” But then he shoved his entire foot down America’s throat, telling them “try building your cars in the United States instead of shipping them over.”
And, finally, we have his state dinner with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. While talking about the 2016 election, the only topic Trump cares about, he explained to the gathering that he was shocked by the number of congratulatory phone calls coming from “all over the world” because he “never knew we had so many countries.”
I feel for you America, stay strong.
