Amid royal honors, Trump steps on his own good press

Amid royal honors, Trump steps on his own good press President Donald Trump often gripes about his bad press -- but as his state visit to Japan shows, sometimes he's his own worst enemy. Trump ought to be in the middle of an easy two-week cruise of flattering coverage and statesman-like imagery, with British royals set to follow Japan's imperial court and roll out the red carpet pageantry that he loves next week. He could have stepped away from the perpetually raging Washington storm, especially since Congress is on a recess that could offer a timeout from his separation-of-powers showdown with Democrats.

Actress Bette Midler, a frequent Trump critic, detailed what she called a "proportion fail."

"His white waistcoat is at least two inches too long; tailcoat is supposed to be almost the same length as the waistcoat beneath, sleeves should be shorter and show a bit of the cuff below, waist itself is nipped in...what a figure he cuts! Fire the tailor!!" Midler wrote on Twitter.

MSNBC host Joy Reid asked royal experts on Twitter to weigh in on the length of Trump's vest tails.

Others compared Trump's attire to a similar outfit worn by former President Obama at a state banquet in May 2011, and joked about the fit of Trump's tails.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) even weighed in, saying he was more concerned with Trump's behavior during the three-day state visit.

"What I care about is how monumentally stupid it is for Trump to be cheerleading Brexit. There is no way to confront an expansionist Russia and a rising China without the United States and a strong, united Europe working together," Murphy wrote on Twitter.

Trump on Sunday said that he would support the United Kingdom leaving the European Union without a Brexit deal if U.K. officials can't reach an agreement with EU leaders.

"If they don't get what they want, I would walk away," Trump told Britain's Sunday Times just before the state banquet. "Yes, I would walk away. If you don't get the deal you want, if you don't get a fair deal, then you walk away."

Mexico denies Trump's claim of secret concessions in deal.
WASHINGTON — Three days after U.S. President Donald Trump announced a deal with Mexico to stem the flow of migrants at the southern border, the two countries appear unable to agree on exactly what's in it. Stung by criticism that the agreement mostly ramps up border protection efforts already underway, Trump on Monday hinted at other, secret agreements he says will soon be revealed. "We have fully signed and documented another very important part of the Immigration and Security deal with Mexico, one that the U.S. has been asking about getting for many years," Trump wrote Monday, saying it would "be revealed in the not too distant future.
