This Video of Trump Abruptly Running Out Of His Executive Order Ceremony Is Awkward AF

In an attempt to dodge questions about Russia he created many more.

To say Donald Trump’s behavior is often times off-the-wall would be an understatement. And yesterday’s (March 31) executive order signing was no different.

  1. The president invited the media to once again cover a “ceremony” of him signing executive orders we’ll all be soon to feel the wrath of. Trump called Friday’s orders a “great revival” of US manufacturing.

    "Thank you everybody," he said, speaking from his podium. "You're going to be seeing some very, very strong results very, very quickly. Thank you very much."

    After his typically hyperbolic speech, Trump left the room to dodge impending questions about his ties to Russia – more specifically, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s request for immunity in exchange for testimony about those ties.

    Running so quickly out the door, The Donald forgot to sign the orders he called everyone into office to watch him put ink to. Vice President Pence attempted to remind him he had some paperwork on his desk to complete, to which Trump told him to bring along so he could sign it in private.

    Pence’s trip to the desk and back was nearly as awkward as Donald forgetting the whole point of his meeting. The two orders targeted trade deficits, which was one of Trump’s biggest reform promises during the campaign.

    Twitter had a field day with Donald Trump’s oops at his executive order signing. Check out what went down and the reaction to it below.
