WATCH: Donald Trump Imitates Chinese President Xi Jinping on Why China Doesn’t Have a Drug Problem: ‘It’s Called the Death Penalty…They Have What’s Called a Quick Trial’

Oh, no.

President Donald Trump is currently in talks with representatives of China to reach a trade agreement that would mitigate the effects of increased tariffs between the two countries.

Though officials seem optimistic about the talks, some were uneasy when Trump imitated Chinese President Xi during a business meeting at the White House.

The president’s remarks came during a speech about claims that a wall at the southern border would have a significant effect on drug trafficking from Mexico into the United States. Trump recalled a meeting with President Xi.

“So you have 1.4 billion people, and you don’t have a drug problem? ‘That’s right, no drug problem.’ I said what do you attribute that to? ‘Death penalty. Quick trial.'”

He then reiterated Xi’s words in what sounded like an attempt to mimic Xi’s voice:

“They have what’s called a ‘Quick trial.'”

Watch below:

The president’s imitation was met with enough silence to hear a pin drop. Twitter, however, wasn’t keeping quiet.

Trump went on to brag that it took him “one minute” to convince the Chinese president that criminalizing the sale of Fentanyl to the United States would save “many lives.”
