    It’s been no secret that Donald Trump has a somewhat troubling relationship with umbrellas, but he has apparently found a way to end his headline-grabbing struggles with the brolly.

    In a now-viral video tweeted by The Hill, President Donald Trump is seen holding an umbrella as he climbs the ramp of Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews on Friday.

    As POTUS gets to the top of the stairs, he turns to wave and then, apparently recalling his past fiascos, passes over the open umbrella to a hand sticking out through the doorway of his jet.

    The incident made social media users speculate about the Trump-brella once again: they suggested that he still hasn’t figured out how to close a canopy:

    Other Twitterians mocked the situation by mimicking the way Trump usually boasts about his accomplishments:

    Some netizens were left baffled by the mysterious hand, and wondered who the umbrella guy was: his son-in-law Jared Kushner or maybe even Thing from the Addams Family?

    This is not the first time that Trump and his black umbrella have made headlines: last October he had two blunders of the kind.

    First, he struggled with a gust of wind to close his canopy while boarding the presidential plane and neglectfully hurled it to the side, with cameras capturing it roll in the wind at Joint Base Andrews.

    Prior to that, he was shamed on Twitter for leaving his wife Melania to get soaked in the rain, while he carried the cover over his own famed yellow mane during a joint promenade.
