"The President has colored his flag wrong".
The commander-in-chief, who toured the children's hospital to gain more information about the opioid crisis plaguing the nation, was joined by first lady Melania Trump and Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar for a photo opp.
Azar may not have realized it at the time, but the image shows that Trump had colored a blue stripe onto the American flag.
New U.S.-Mexico trade agreement is hardly a done deal
The Journal went onto bash the Trump agreement for stripping "current protections from most US investors in Mexico". The United States relented on its demand for an automatic expiration for the deal, known as a "sunset clause ".
It was great setting for a photo-op, but turned into a joke because apparently Trump doesn't know what the American flag looks like.
This drew the attention of Twitter users, which published photos of the visit trump children's hospital in Ohio. Mr Trump was accused of hypocrisy following his attacks on NFL players for failing to respect the flag and kneel for the national anthem before games. A number of people suggested that Trump was thinking of the Russian flag, which does feature a blue stripe.
One netizen, Perfect Pour (@counteroffive), pointed out that what made Trump's mistake entertaining was that the U.S. President was wearing a flag pin on his lapel. It was also claimed Mr Trump appeared to be trying to copy the child sat next to him at the table. Donald Trump faced a lot of flak for allegedly disrespecting the United States flag after colouring it wrong! It is worth noting, however, that the blue line identifier they were talking about is marked by a thin blue horizontal line on a black and white American flag.
