President Donald Trump was making a live speech about the controversial new tax reform bill when he made the mistake of going off script. It’s clear from many prior off-script tangents by the president that he is much better off depending on a teleprompter and just reading the speech somebody else has written for him.

But on Wednesday, the president spoke, not from the strategically planned words on the teleprompter, but from his own mind. And as the president himself has said in the past, he, “has the best words.” In this case, Trump’s “best words,” led him to mock Asian leaders.

Trump should have stuck with the purpose of the speech, which was to inform American citizens of his plans for tax return, but instead, he began to make comments about America’s Asian allies “getting away with murder,” by benefiting from the protection of the United States at no cost. According to Trump, these countries are so rich that they “don’t know what to do with their money.” “And we defend them,” he said as he stood before a cheering crowd. “That’s going to change,” he promised, in reference to present circumstances.

The president claimed that a lot of the current circumstances regarding the United States’ protection of Asian countries is “from many years ago,” when America began to provide support and protection for a “defeated” country which then began to recover, grow and expand. According to Trump, the problem is that the U.S. is still offering protection to the countries.

“What happened?” the president asked, as he waved his arms before the crowd, “Why didn’t anyone go in and negotiate?” It was then that Trump began to mock the Asian allies, making a face and bobbing his head with ignorance.

Then, as the crowd laughed, he stated, “that means they know they’re getting away with murder, and they gotta start helping us out.” He closed the discussion by stating that he will, “start bringing that up with some of [his] good friends.” All the while, the audience seemed fairly entertained by Trump’s antics.
