Watch out: Protocol pitfalls abound as Trump heads abroad

LOL. Because Trump isn't an apologist for America we get this biased opinion piece.

Very few actually get it all 100% right.

Even totally PC Obama didn't get it all 100% correct.

On Behalf of the Entire Global Population, I / we humbly apologise for the actions of donald trump while in Japan.

Trump is easy to please; just praise him to the stars, and offer him bribes.

It's because he lacks basic social skills, let alone diplomatic tact. Why should people pretend that he does?

By the way, "apologist for" means practically the opposite of how you're attempting to use it.

He pushed his way to the front of a pack of world leaders as they got into position for a photo at a NATO meeting in Brussels in 2017.

Like a BOSS!

He belittled Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over Twitter after leaving a fractious meeting of the Group of Seven industrialized nations last year in Canada.

Justin needed some belittling. Most Canadians would agree.

And he arrived late to Windsor Castle when he met the queen for the first time last year. Her schedules are arranged so she doesn't have to wait for anyone.

Welcome to the real world, my Queen!

It's because he lacks basic social skills, let alone diplomatic tact

You must have missed this too

Officials there say they aren't worried about any diplomatic blunders, noting that Trump's meeting two years ago with then-Emperor Akihito went smoothly.
