President Donald Trump’s twelve-day trip through Asia has been a historic journey thus far. However, what happened after he landed in Vietnam on Friday took the cake. As Trump’s convoy was traveling down a street in Da Nang, he spotted a sign being held by a Vietnamese man in the crowd, and it left him speechless.
President Trump landed in Vietnam on Friday ahead of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Da Nang, marking the fourth leg of his overseas trip, which began in Japan. There, Trump met with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, an important ally against North Korea’s nuclearcrazed
dictator Kim Jong-un.

From Japan, Trump headed to South Korea, where he was treated to a hero’s welcome. It had been speculated that there was some sort of diplomatic tension between the U.S. president and President Moon Jae-in, the leader of South Korea, but those rumors were put to bed when President Moon surprised Trump at Camp Humphreys, a U.S. military base in South Korea.
President Moon’s move to meet Trump at the base broke with protocol and was not previously scheduled, thus, it was taken as a gesture of extreme respect and gratitude towards the American president which did not go unnoticed.
There is a typical protocol when diplomats from different countries meet each other, but President Moon Jae-in shocked President Donald Trump when he met him personally after Trump had landed at Camp Humphreys, a military base located in South Korea. Moon Jae-in was patiently waiting for Trump as he deplaned at the military base. This is a break in the typical protocol and is officially an honor that no other US President has experienced before.

After his successful stop in South Korea, Trump moved on to China. Instead of forcing the president to exit from the “ass” of Air Force One when he landed, which was done to Obama, the Chinese rolled out the red carpet for Trump, treating him to a full military orchestra and children who were waving American and Chinese flags.
The accolades followed Trump to Vietnam on Friday, where the president was met by throngs of foreign supporters who flocked to the roadside just to get a glimpse at his presidential motorcade. In the midst of the crowd, one man stood out. He was holding a homemade sign which read, “Welcome The President (Angel) of America Donald Trump To Da Nang, Vietnam.”
