The Trump administration has frustrated politicians and American citizens on both sides of the aisle. He is far from the traditional style of president that the United States has witnessed in the past, and that has to do in large part with his lack of political experience. That inexperience has resulted in some pretty awkward (and embarrassing) moments for the president, particularly when engaging with other world leaders. Here are five photos of world leaders meeting with Trump who clearly did not know what they were getting themselves into. Seriously, these are too funny to not revisit.
Trump is anything but a traditional president, so clearly his meetings with other world leaders thus far have been non-traditional as well. Am I surprised that Trump and his political counterparts have had less than smooth encounters? Not at all — it's to be expected from Trump. But maybe with time Trump will learn how to approach a world leader with class and ease. Or maybe he won't. Only time will tell. But if this administration has taught me anything, it's that laughter is truly the best medicine. So below are a handful of the most strange, awkward, and shady moments that Trump's shared with other world leaders.
