President Trump never fails to embarrass himself during his trips abroad. In fact, his multi-stop trip to Asia has already started off to a rocky start. Trump has already been called out for dumping an entire box of fish food into a koi pond, and shunning Japanese food while visiting the country. But things got much worse on Monday when Trump spoke in front of a room full of Japanese business leaders and exposed to the world the President of the United States has major short-term memory loss issues. Trump couldn’t even seem to remember which deal he’s made with who.
The President did, however, remember his beloved company Boeing and their F-18 fighter jets. But totally forgot that he was there to celebrate the sale of Lockheed Martin’s new F-35 jets, which the United States has spent $1.5 trillion dollars developing, sources report.

For some unknown reason, Trump is a big fan of the aircraft manufacturer. Melania Trump even had stocks in Boeing but she was forced to sell them when her husband took office. But the main point here is that Trump has only been overseas for two days and he has already managed to make a fool of himself and his country. When it comes to foreign relations and diplomacy, America will take former President Barack Obama over Trump any day. The fact that we can’t even trust the president to do the most basic of tasks without shoving his foot in his mouth and looking like a fool is unacceptable.
Trump’s trip is to help improve America’s foreign relations with other world leaders. But why would other world leaders want to get involved with a President who clearly has no clue what he is talking about?
