Trump Drinks Water With Two Hands and Has Trouble Breathing in Bizarre Speech [VIDEO]

Is President Donald Trump doing OK? It's unclear.

During a televised speech from the White House on Wednesday summarizing his recent trip to Asia, Trump seemed to have difficulty breathing and had to pause to drink water, using two hands to grasp his Fiji water bottle before continuing. 

Will the president now regret his infamous tweet mocking Republican Senator Marco Rubio for drinking water during a national speech? "Next time Marco Rubio should drink his water from a glass as opposed to a bottle—would have much less negative impact," Trump tweeted in February 2013. 

Trump has actually poked fun at Rubio over this on more than one occasion (watch below). 

Rubio got his revenge on Wednesday, tweeting, "Similar, but needs work on his form. Has to be done in one single motion & eyes should never leave the camera. But not bad for his 1st time." 

The president used Wednesday's speech to boast about his 12-day Asia trip, which he returned from on Tuesday. "America is back," Trump said. 

Trump visited Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines, primarily focusing on trade and the North Korean nuclear threat throughout his travels. The president reiterated his "America First" philosophy during the trip, calling for more favorable trade deals for the U.S.

Meanwhile, he told North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to not "underestimate" the U.S., while also offering a potential path to peace if the nation agrees to certain stipulations. But North Korea has not shown any interest in such an offer and claimed that Trump "begged" for nuclear war during his trip. 

Despite massive protests in the countries he visited, including one that involved protesters lighting a swastika-shaped effigy featuring Trump's face on fire, the president has painted his trip as a grand success. 

Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted, "Our great country is respected again in Asia. You will see the fruits of our long but successful trip for many years to come!"
