Donald Trump embarrassed himself and America by taking a trip to Mexico, and his failure was skillfully mocked by Hillary Clinton.
On Wednesday, the Republican nominee traveled to Mexico to meet with President Enrique Peña Nieto. Many Trump supporters were giddy about the trip because they were hoping Trump would bully Mexico into paying for the wall he wants to build along the southern United States border.
Instead, Trump demonstrated that he is not the strong leader on foreign policy that he has been pretending to be. Trump tucked his tail between his legs and flew to Phoenix to lie to the crowd about how he and Nieto did not discuss payment for construction of the wall but promised that Mexico will still pay for it, it’s just that “they don’t know it yet.”
Nieto immediately released a statement contradicting Trump’s claims, telling the media that he directly told Trump that Mexico “will not pay for that wall.”
And so, Trump’s first attempt to delve into foreign policy was a failure. And Hillary Clinton couldn’t resist reminding him of it.
“Trump just failed his first foreign test,” she wrote on Twitter. “Diplomacy isn’t as easy as it looks.”
Trump just failed his first foreign test. Diplomacy isn’t as easy as it looks. -H

And Hillary would know since she is a former Secretary of State.
But that didn’t stop Trump supporters from viciously attacking her on Twitter in response. Apparently, they think Trump’s trip was an absolute success.
Here are some of the tweets.

And there’s a lot more where those came from.
Clearly, Trump supporters are in denial.
