Donald Trump is currently on a trip to Vietnam. As is tradition, he wore the same outfit as President Tran Dai Quang to the APEC gala dinner, as did all the other world leaders gathered there. The time honored tradition kicked off his East-Asian tour.
Those world leaders include Justin Trudeau and Vladimir Putin, all similarly togged out in a blue shirt. For some reason, the sight of Putin and Trump shaking hands while dressed as twinsies has really captured the public imagination. It was just too good to pass up as the two have been speculated to be secret partners since Trumps campaign came under fire back in 2016. So the Internet clearly couldn't resist an opportunity to turn it into amazing memes.
Though blue silk matching pants and shirts look very comfortable for going to eat a big meal, it got a lot of people on the Internet looking for other examples of presidents out of their usual stuffy suits. Surprisingly it's actually sort of hard to find but the Internet did scrounge up a few gems we hadn't seen before.
And they're pretty good:
Some great lewks in there! But nothing can really top Trump's handshake for unnecessary accessories, no matter what else he's wearing. He's just so awkward with it. Seriously can we point to a non-awful time Trump tried to get a handshake? Or even his "bro huge" style of handshake where he grips someone in for the "Trump hug" which makes things really, really weird. Apparently people have said it's a power-move he's always used but we still maintain it's a bad look.
What did you think of the matching outfits? Was it proof of the Putin // Trump conspiracy or was it just vintage Trump being an absolute goof.
