Trump’s exit from summit with Kim delayed... because of broken down stair (VIDEO)

Trump’s exit from summit with Kim delayed... because of broken down stair (VIDEO)
As US President Donald Trump prepared to make a rather hasty exit following a no deal at the highly anticipated Hanoi peace summit with North Korea, an unexpected malfunction added insult to injury.

While North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made a somewhat awkward entrance to the summit, as his train overshot the waiting red carpet and his interpreter was forced to sprint after him, Trump’s exit was marred by a minor mechanical fault which delayed takeoff for a brief period while Secret Service agents manhandled the malfunctioning stair car out of the way.

Trump's unexpectedly early exit provided some initial confusion as reporters waited for a scheduled lunch between the two world leaders prior to the announcement that the summit had, in fact, already ended without any agreement reached.
