Major cock ups by Donald Trump’s team at G20 meeting

President of the United States (POTUS) Donald Trump was in Hamburg for the G20 meeting last week (7 – 8 July).

The current US State Department’s incompetency was free for all to see during the G20 meeting.

Cock up 1) — “Alamak! Forgot to book hotel room for POTUS”

So apparently, Trump’s team forgot to book a hotel for the POTUS and his staff.

According to Vox, the White House apparently waited too long before making a reservation for Trump and his traveling staff for the summit, which began on 7 July. All the luxury hotels in the city were completely booked by other world leaders, leaving the US president — who made his name in business building, uh, luxury hotels — without a place to stay. What an irony.

Cock up 2) — “Getting names of countries and leaders wrong”

Mistook our PM Lee Hsien Loong as Indonesian President Jokowi.

Donald Trump mistook PM Lee as Jokowi

Claimed that “People’s Republic of China” President Xi Jinping is President of “Republic of China” aka “Taiwan”.

Japanese “Prime Minister” Shinzo Abe became “President” Shinzo Abe.

Horrible.
