During his five-country, 12-day visit to Asia, President Donald Trump stopped off in Japan and managed to fit in a round of golf with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. And it appears Abe had a rather embarrassing slip-up.
While playing with a golf pro and Trump on November 5th, Abe found himself in a sand trap. Making his way out of the fairway bunker, the Japanese leader tried to run up the slope. And that’s when he completely ate it.
As you can see in the clip, as soon as Abe made it to the top, he lost his balance and goes head over heels back into the bunker, losing his hat in the process. He quickly recovered, however, snatched up his hat and did the whole “jog like I meant to do that” thing as he made his way back to the cart.
