A few days ago, Donald Trump was in Ohio, together with wife Melania, where they toured the Nationwide Children's Hospital. The presidential couple came there to learn about a specialized program to care for kids born into the opioid crisis and find a way to tackle it.
Today, President @realdonaldtrump and @FLOTUS Melania toured the neonatal intensive care unit at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, learning more about a specialized program to care for babies born into the opioid crisis.

As part of the visit, the Trumps also mingled with children who gladly demonstrated the FLOTUS and the POTUS their drawing skills. And it was simply impossible to resist joining the fun!
As seen in the pictures shared by health secretary Alex Azar, the President decided to color with a group of children. But in one of the pictures, eagle-eyed Twitter folks found a mistake Trump made while coloring the flag.
Did he forget the colors of his own nation’s flag?
The opioid crisis is one of our top priorities at HHS, with a drumbeat of action on the full range of efforts where we can assist local communities. Today, I joined @POTUS & @FLOTUS in Ohio to learn how states and communities are responding to the challenge of opioid addiction. pic.twitter.com/NwxSoeNznA— Alex Azar (@SecAzar) August 25, 2018
It turns out that the 72-year-old added a blue stripe to the star-spangled banner. The 13 alternating stripes should be red and white, representing the original colonies.

In another picture, Trump is seen holding a blue felt-tip pen, which only proves that the flag was his own, and not the one of the kids’. Was it a deliberate act or a simple mistake?

Some internet users suggested the President was coloring in the Russian flag. Others spotted the resemblance to the flag of the Netherlands. And many were just outraged Trump disrespected the flag.
Apparently he can’t color from memory either... pic.twitter.com/C3Qsug0nm1— Rob Jackson (@muh_thoughts) August 25, 2018
What is it with your Republican presidents? pic.twitter.com/9OYdsuYOod— Sheoakbloke (@Sheoakbloke1) August 25, 2018
I was unaware there was a United States of the Netherlands. pic.twitter.com/EMbAd51U8p— Leon Kums (@g8erlaw68) August 25, 2018
The real land of the free. You're all welcome to become part of the Netherlands. Better health care, better education, religion separated from state, owning a gun is a privilege and not a right, legal soft drugs and prostitution and we take a hard stance against racism and sexism— Willem Verheij (@WillemVerheij85) August 25, 2018
Now THIS is what disrespecting the flag looks like.— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) August 26, 2018
Or, maybe it was just a unique artistic vision and improvisation?
