This is not the only joke Trump has made on Modi's expense.

Trump meant to speak on the phone with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the middle of the afternoon, apparently unaware that midafternoon in Washington is the middle of the night in Tokyo and Abe would most likely be fast asleep.

US President Donald Trump has a "bizarre" desire to frequently hold phone conversations with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, often leaving the latter confused about the concrete agenda of the talks, media reported, citing a White House official.

Sanders said that Trump has "even worked the phone with our competitors" and that "foreign leaders appreciate that the president is willing to take their calls day and night". Trump, for example, allegedly referred to Nepal as "nipple" and Bhutan as "button" as aides prepped him for a meeting with India's prime minister.

"He wasn't great with recognizing that the leader of a country might be 80 or 85 years old and isn't going to be awake or in the right place at 10:30 or 11 p.m. their time", a former Trump NSC official told Politico.

The National Security Council is forced to tell the president that he can not immediately speak to global powers at times due to the fact that they might be asleep, several current and former aides told Politico. 'He was like, "What is this stuff in between and these other countries?"

ScotRail commuters to be hit with 3.2 per cent fares rise
Twitter user Stuart Goodwin said: "So they're ploughing ahead with rail fare rises, irrespective of the chaos". The TUC union earlier calculated that rail fares had risen over twice as fast as wages over the past decade.

A former White House official said that, at the beginning of his presidential term, Trump tended to frequently call foreign leaders with little preparation. On Sunday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told ABC News that NDAs are "typical" in offices and "we've all signed them in the West Wing", and Trump tweeted Monday: "Wacky Omarosa already has a fully signed Non-Disclosure Agreement!"

President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi hug while making statements in the Rose Garden of the White House in June 2017. He's more impulsive that way.

"He's the president of the United States. You don't just call to check in", the official said.

Likewise, a person who is close to Trump suggested that the former businessman calls on people at inopportune times because he's inconsiderate.

The article also focussed on the "diplomatic faux-pas" committed by Trump during his discussions with foreign leaders over a wide range of issues.
