Synchronised interpretation during a meeting with Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri has angered US President Donald Trump, who didn’t fail to bring his discontent up when both country leaders were standing up in front of journalists. The US President was even seen to drop the receiver onto the floor.
"I understood him better in his language than in my 'interpretation'," he said.
