Just when you think there’s no possible way Trump can further embarrass himself and the United States while overseas in front of world leaders, he gets caught on camera making an absolute fool of himself once again.
While signing the new trade deal that he named the USMCA (United States/Mexico/Canada Agreement), which is little more than NAFTA 2.0, Trump was so confused that he had to look over at Canada’s Justin Trudeau and Mexico’s Enrique Pena Nieto’s signatures to understand what he needed to do.

This is not the first time Trump has humiliated himself overseas, nor is it even the first time he’s acted the fool at the G20. During his first appearance there, Trump sat next to Russian President Vladimir Putin and denied the findings of the U.S. intelligence agencies by saying that he believed Putin when he denied Russian involvement in illegal hacking during the 2016 campaigns in order to help Trump.
During a summit with Putin in Helsinki, Trump repeated that behavior while standing next to Putin, insisting that he couldn’t see “why it would be” Russia who committed cybercrimes. Two days later, following a deluge of backlash, Trump tried to cover that statement by saying that he misspoke and meant to say that he didn’t see “why it wouldn’t” be Russia. No one with any sense bought that.
He was also laughed at by other world leaders during a UN meeting when he insisted that he has been the most successful U.S. president in history.
Those are just a few of many examples of embarrassing moments from Trump while overseas representing the U.S. Twitter remembers them all and were quite amused by his need to cheat off smarter people while doing something as simple as signing an agreement. See some of their comments below:
