Filmmaker and political commentator Lexi Alexander said of the video that it didn’t show the world leaders with any awareness of the consequences of Trump’s actions—rather, said Alexander, they were treating the president as simply a source of amusement.
“People are dying because of Trump,” tweeted Alexander. “Lots of people. All over the world. That’s what bothers me about this video. It doesn’t feel like they’re aware of that. He’s not just a harmless buffoon.”
A closing press conference scheduled for Wednesday morning at 10:20am EST was apparently canceled by the president, who said that he would fly back to the U.S.
“We’ll probably go directly back to Washington,” said Trump. “I think we’ve done plenty of press conferences.”
Daily Telegraph writer Michael Deacon implied the cancellation was due to the president’s embarrassment.
“Has Trump just cancelled his big press conference today because the other boys made fun of his last one,” said Deacon.
