President Donald Trump talked up two new executive orders on trade enforcement on Friday, but then abruptly left the Oval Office without actually signing them.
Footage of the apparent glitch showed Trump entering the room for the executive order announcement and subsequent photo opportunity that goes along with it.
But after the president gave his short speech, he promptly walked out and left the orders sitting neatly on his desk.
Vice president Mike Pence was filmed rushing after Trump and appeared to tell him he had forgotten to actually sign the orders.
Trump, however, did not come back into the Oval Office, leaving his advisers standing awkwardly near his desk.
Footage shows him briefly speaking to Pence, before staring back into the room full of reporters and White House officials and then continuing to walk away.
Pence went back to the president’s desk and collected the executive orders under his arm.
