The American leader, 72, held the waterproof covering himself to protect his mane from the wet weather at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland that afternoon. However after he climbed the steps to go inside the aircraft he surprised onlookers with what he did next.
With the world watching, Trump nonchalantly tossed the canopy to the side as cameras captured it roll in the windy conditions.

President Donald Trump is being mocked for failing to close his umbrella for himself Saturday
The American leader was caught dropping the item at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland
Instead of closing the item properly he simply discarded of it and walked into the plane
He did not seem to care to collapse the item or wait for another person to do so for him before he made the trip to Indianapolis, Indiana and Illinois.
In a clip being shared on social media, another member of his team dashes up the stairs after him and dodges the large umbrella to walk through the door.
A Secret Service agent later picked up the waterproof cover and collapsed the large item
A Secret Service agent later picked up the waterproof cover.
But it didn’t stop people making fun of the president online.
One user sharing the clip wrote: ‘Trump doesn’t know how to put an umbrella down, pass it on.’
Trump had been speaking about the earlier shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh
Trump’s moves garnered attention on social media and people declared he didn’t know how to close an umbrella
The appearance came after he spoke publicly about the mass shooting a Pittsburgh synagogue that day.
‘They had a maniac walk in and they didn’t have any protection and that is so sad to see,’ he had said earlier as he called for better security in public places. ‘If you take a look at it, if they had protection inside, the results would have been far better.’
The umbrella blunder wasn’t the only one for Trump this month.
He was vilified on Twitter for leaving his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, to get soaked as he covered only himself while lapping up media attention.
