President Trump became a laughingstock on the world stage
On 26th September 2018 President Donald Trump held the fourth solo press conference of his presidency. President Trump most likely held this conference in order to fight back against his administration’s numerous scandals, as well as the incredibly controversial nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The presser also took place only one day after Trump was laughed at while speaking at the United Nations General Assembly. This should have been a fairly straightforward speech by Trump. However, as with all things the President seems to be involved in, the conference quickly derailed and devolved into utter absurdity.
