Trump to Al-Sisi: “Boy, love your shoes.”
Moments after Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi complimented President Donald Trump on his “unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible,” Trump exchanged pleasantries back, praising Al-Sisi’s shoes, CNN reported on Monday.
“Love your shoes. Boy, those shoes. Man … ,” Trump said, as reporters were being escorted out of the room, CNN added.
It’s unclear the exact shoe the Egyptian President was wearing, but appeared to be black boots, similar to those Trump was wearing, but shinier, the CNN added.
The exchange wasn’t observed by video cameras in the room, but was captured in an audio recording, according to the CNN.
