President of the United States Donald Trump amused citizens of Saudi Arabia with his embarrassed movements during the traditional "Dance of Swords".

Ritual was held specially in honor of the visit right before the solemn dinner. Also at the ceremony was the King of KS Salman ibn Abdul-Aziz Al Saud.

Internet users were amused by the fact that Trump, like the Saudi men, swayed and smiled, listening to the drumbeat and singing that accompanied the dance. Together with Trump at the ceremony danced and the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, as well as adviser to President Steve Bannon.

It should be noted that the "Dance of Swords" originally symbolized the military victories of Saudi Arabia, and now it has become an integral part of official events. During the performance, the dancers lift the swords into the heavens, which symbolizes their joy and triumph.
