VIDEO: Japanese PM falls into bunker while playing golf with Trump
SAITAMA, Japan: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe suffered an embarrassing moment when he fell over and rolled in sand after playing golf with US President Donald Trump, who remained oblivion of the flip.
Trump went out golfing with Shinzo Abe at the sprawling Kasumi Country Club. But, what came out as an unexpected twist was a golf gaffe — that too, one that didn’t involve Trump. Wondering what?
The fall happened on Sunday before Trump made his way to China to meet Xi Jinping. It should have been an awkward trip, bearing in mind he once said China was ‘raping’ America.
Abe, who was dressed in a white sweater, hit a shot and was making his way up out of a bunker. But, he suddenly lost balance and rolled down. But, to save the embarrassment in front of another foreign leader, he got back on his feet swiftly in a reflex — almost like a Ninja.
Trump did not notice the flip, and perhaps before he could know about it, the clip went viral on the social media.
