The whole world has just literally laughed in Donald Trump’s face. Trump was making his eagerly awaited president’s address at the United Nations when he typically boasted about his administration being the ‘most accomplished’ in America’s history. There was a slight pause but then a very loud ripple of laughter went around the hall.
It seems the leaders of the world couldn’t help themselves and laughed out loud in unison at his boasting. Unsurprisingly, it stopped Trump in his tracks. A small grin appeared on his face, and he said: ‘I didn’t expect that reaction but it’s OK.’
Trump told the world leaders, who were evidently in high spirits, that the American economy is ‘booming like never before’. Despite the laughter, Trump said the US is a ‘stronger, safer and richer country’ than when he took office in January 2017. He said ‘we are standing up for America and for the American people, and we are also standing up for the world.’
