Trump at a NATO summit breakfast on Wednesday said that Germany is “captive to Russia” over a gas pipeline deal.
„If you look at it, Germany is a captive of Russia because they supply,“ the president said. „They got rid of their coal plants. They got rid of their nuclear. They’re getting so much of the oil and gas from Russia. I think it’s something that NATO has to look at. I think it’s very inappropriate.“
Video from the breakfast shows Kelly and other senior officials appearing to react to the comment. Kelly pursed his lips and looked away from the president.
Facial expression experts who analyzed the video for The Washington Post said that Kelly’s body language signaled irritation and displeasure, but not “hardcore anger.”
But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders offered an explanation for Kelly’s reaction to The Post.
“[Kelly] was displeased because he was expecting a full breakfast and there were only pastries and cheese,” Huckabee Sanders said.
