People Outraged Over What Trump Was Caught Doing To Putin On Tape

President Donald Trump just keeps digging himself deeper and deeper in trouble with denials that he had any meaningful conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. With each accusation, Trump has come up with an excuse, only to have each one publicly shot down. In the latest reports to come out about the dinner, a video shows Trump gesturing to Putin.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Mr. Trump met for more than two hours in a public meeting with both U.S. and foreign dignitaries present. When news broke last Tuesday that the two also held an hour-long private meeting, the White House denied that it happened. According to a paranoid Trump, it was another yarn spun by 'Fake News' trying to take him down. He said the stories were 'sick'.

Trump and the White House argued that the president merely went by and said hello because First Lady Melania was seated next to Putin, and they chatted conversationally for a few minutes. After Trump's indignant denial of any lengthy, private conversation, new facts began to emerge.

According to reports, Trump and Putin spent an hour together on the sidelines at the dinner, only accompanied by Putin's translator. Trump's translator, who was there to interpret Japanese, sat the conversation out.

Trump has been seated next to Japanese First Lady Akie Abe for the dinner. When he was asked why he didn't speak to her, he seemed to forget he had a Japanese translator with him and told the press that the Prime Minister's wife didn't speak English. He claimed she couldn't even say 'hello'.

The next day, a video of Mrs. Abe giving a 15-minute long speech in English was circulated on news websites. Considering Abe and her husband, Prime Minister Abe, spent time with the Trumps at their Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, it's a little surprising that the president isn't aware of her English-speaking skills.

Now, a video captured from above shows Trump trying to get Putin's attention from across the table. The video was captured by MSNBC Live, and shows Trump pointing back and forth to himself and Putin, then clenching his fist and moving it back and forth.

"Here's Donald Trump desperately trying to get Vlad's attention at the G20 dinner," tweeted Daily Kos social media editor Jennifer Hayden.

Many people on social media have joked about the gestures, considering the 'bromance' relationship Trump is known to have with Putin. Watch needy Trump signal his diplomatic question to Putin: “You? Me? I give you a little-hand job?” said someone trying to interpret the signals.

Some take it as a confirmation that Trump was trying to let Putin know they needed to talk, before the two proceeded to have the private conversation that the White House at first denied. Even if the conversation was innocent, the lying about it and the shroud of secrecy surrounding it, as well as the investigation into whether Trump colluded with Russia to thwart the 2016 elections have given rise to much speculation.
