While speaking in Israel, Trump told the Israelis that he just got back from the Middle East, apparently not knowing that Israel is in the Middle East.

Trump said, “Our Secretary of State has done a great job. We just got back from the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, and we were treated incredibly well.”
The White House admitted on Sunday that Trump was already exhausted by the trip. The President is apparently so out of it that he didn’t know that was still in the Middle East, or even worse, he doesn’t know that Israel is in the Middle East. Since this is Donald Trump that is being discussed either option is realistically possible.
Watch Israeli ambassador Ron Dermer (on the right couch) put his head in his hands when Trump tells Israel that they aren’t located in the Middle East.
It is impossible for the world to take Donald Trump seriously when he doesn’t even know where he’s at.
Every single day, Donald J. Trump finds new ways to humiliate the people of the United States of America.
