Donald Trump has been on his maiden foreign Presidential trip less than 36 hours and already a lot of very weird stuff has happened.

He's ridden a golden escalator, he's had his face projected on a hotel, he's had his face all over the country.

But last night, with King Salman, he participated in an 'all male sword dance', and it was as awkward as it sounds.

Melania and Ivanka watched on as POTUS and his male pals played with their swords.

Trump was filmed awkwardly bouncing to drum beats with Saudi Arabian statesman holding what appears to be a Scimitar, a traditional curved sword in the Middle East.

He was accompanied by Rex Tillerson, the Secretary of State, and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

The dance took place at outside the King Abdulaziz Historical Centre, Jared Kushner, Reince Pribus and Steve Bannon all also made an appearance, but didn't take part in the ceremonial dance.
