This video seems to refute Trump’s belief that Abe isn’t able to say a single word of English - and the internet is loving it.
Many have taken the video as ‘proof’ Abe went to extreme measures to avoid having a conversation with the controversial president and hailed her a hero and ‘deeply relatable’ for her actions.
To be honest, for a woman who apparently can't speak a word of English she sounds pretty fluent here:People on Twitter have been throwing shade at Trump and cheering on the first lady of Japan for spending two hours in silence to avoid having a conversation with a man who is infamous for a never ending list of controversies.
