Trump Surprises Media By Choosing To Ride Golf Cart Instead Of Walking With G7 Leaders In Sicily


U.S. President Donald Trump on final day’s international tour took a downright bizarre path before the president returns home.

President Donald Trump surprised media and major states’ leaders when he chose his favourite vehicle of all time, golf cart, to carry him on his final day of his international tour rather than walk with the G7 leaders in Taormina, Sicily.

A stand out

It was noted that U.S. President tended to stand out and mark his own domineering position among other leaders; he decided to move front and centre for the group photo that caught the leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Italy, Germany and Japan together on Saturday in the hilltop town.

According to the Times of London, the six state leaders walked a quarter of a mile, heading to a piazza. Trump, on the other hand, bided the golf cart to carry him to the piazza. Then, he got off the cart to join the six leaders for the final walk to the G7 summit venue in a former monastery, now the San Domenico hotel, The Times reported.

CBC’s David Cochrane referred to the summit as “G-6 plus Donald Trump.” Pointing out to moves made by Trump to stand out.

There were speculations provoked over the notion that the president did not walk and roughly moved during the trip. The Times, on one hand, believed that Trump’s was “out of step” with his fellow leaders and, on the same day, Trump took to Twitter to state that he did not come to decision on whether the U.S. would remain in the Paris climate agreement.

Or exhaustion?

The White House aide, on the other hand, believed that the 70-year-old president might be weary after the hectic trip to the Middle East and Europe.

This is not the first time for Trump to take a golf cart on a foreign trip; he and first lady Melania rode a golf cart along with King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud through the entrance of the National Museum during his trip to Saudi Arabia.
