We all know that Donald Trump just LOVES to trash the press every chance he gets, and he usually gets away with it in the moment. Unfortunately for the disgraceful President of the United States, that was hardly the case at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where Trump was unpleasantly surprised to find himself being checked in real time.
After Trump’s speech at the Forum, he endured a round of Q&A where he predictably decided to brag about himself and take jabs at the press — except this audience wasn’t having it.
Trump was asked what experiences he’d had in the past that had prepared him to be POTUS, and Trump spoke about his history in business before turning on the media. Trump said:
I’ve always seem to get, for whatever reason, a disproportionate amount of press or media. Throughout my whole life, somebody will explain someday why. As a businessman I was always treated really well by the press.”
Then, he went in for the attack:
And it wasn’t until I became a politician that I realized how nasty, how mean, how vicious and how fake the press can be.”
What Trump didn’t see coming was the fact that foreign journalists were not going to stand for this nonsense. As soon as those words came out of his mouth, a loud commotion of boos came from the audience.
The Washington Post’s Ishaan Tharoor confirmed that it was foreign journalists who had opposed the president:
In reaction, Trump scaled back his statement and said:
Overall, the bottom line, somebody said they couldn’t be that bad because here we are, we’re president.”

This proves that no matter where Trump goes, he can’t help but make new enemies.
