Mike Pence ‘visibly shook’ as nobody claps at his applause lines during disastrous European trip

Vice President Mike Pence received a cold welcoming from world leaders as he attempted to convince other countries to follow President Donald Trump.

Speaking to the Munich Security Conference in Germany, Pence told the audience he brought greetings from Trump.

Not a single person clapped.

Pence was also embarrassed while speaking to the Peace and Security in the Middle East conference in Warsaw, Poland.

Pence's speech had an expected applause line, but it followed the Vice President demanding that the other countries follow the United States and withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.

The crowd, who had assembled to discuss bringing peace to the Middle East, refused to clap.
