President Donald Trump hosted the presidents of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia at the White House today, and as far as we know, he didn't talk to the female leaders from Lithuania and Estonia about their looks.
It's Trump's first press conference in a month, and it comes after Trump told the cameras at lunch that he plans to deploy the U.S. Military to the Mexican border (but no word yet about whether Mexico will pay for it).
Here's what went down.
1. The president of Lithuania called Trump's leadership "unpredictable," and I can't tell if it's supposed to be shade.
2. Trump ranted about the Mexican border, NAFTA, and the "caravan of refugees" he can't stop tweeting about. The question was about ISIS (and to clarify his previous comments).
It's all about that base.
3. Trump says that America should have seized Iraq's oil—which is a war crime—and said that ISIS is now using the oil to fund their terrorism. What?

4. He said that he wanted U.S. troops out of Syria—just as the military is ramping up.
5. An Estonian journalist asked Trump whether Putin is his friend or foe, and he responded by saying that Hillary Clinton loved windmills.
Multiple times, he said, "I think I could have a great relationship with Russia, and with President Putin."
Okay, but he's been president for awhile...when will he know?
6. He insisted that "nobody has been tougher on Russia than me," which is why people are nodding.
7. Trump told the Latvian president to "pick a reporter—a Baltic reporter, ideally. We want real news, not fake news." He said the Latvian guy who asked him about Putin was "too tough."
Ha ha, funny "joke"?
