Bizarre moment in Donald Trump's speech fuels conspiracy theory that he can't read

There is a persistent conspiracy theory that Trump can't read - or at least not very well - and the 'evidence' surrounding it is worrying.

Earlier this year, a theory cropped up that Trump would fail basic literary tests, pointing to spelling mistakes in his tweets and his fondness for television over books.

The President didn't help himself when he finally tweeted about a book and seemed to struggle with its title.

Fresh speculation has emerged that Trump allegedly struggles with his ABCs.

Footage shows the President attempting to give a simple toast in South Korea and making absolutely no sense.

In this speech, he appears to have a a verbal tussle with a teleprompter. And loses.

He said:

Together our nations remind the world of the boundless potential of societies that choose freedom over tyranny and who set the free.

And we will free, and we will sacrifice, and we will hope, and we will make things beautiful, especially the aspiration of your people.
