Today President Donald Trump cancelled his meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. He addressed this along with his proposed Wall on the Mexican Border for the cameras and a GOP audience during the Republican retreat today in Philadelphia. It will come as no surprise that Trump's address was laden with very telling nonverbal behavior. One body language moment in particular is buried within the following segment:
At 2:09, President Trump continues, "... To that end - the president of Mexico - and myself have agreed to cancel our planned meeting scheduled for next week [Tight Forward Tongue Jut]. Unless Mexico is going to treat the United States fairly - with respect - such a meeting - would be fruitless - and I wanna go - a different route - we have no choice... "
During 2:18, note the display of President Trump's "Tongue Jut" (More specifically this is a "Tight Tongue Jut" [or a "Tight Forward Tongue Jut"] - in distinction to the "Loose Tongue Jut". Don't confuse these two as they have very different meanings). When there is significant tension (thus the descriptor, "Tight") in the jaw, mouth, lips and mid-face (as can be clearly seen in this example) during a simultaneous tongue jut - this signifies the emotions of being repulsed by, and having a strong distaste and disdain for the issue, person, group of people, etc., at hand. There's also a component of disgust present.
Intriguingly, if you have ever tried to feed an infant creamed asparagus which they didn't like - this is the identical mouth configuration you would see displayed.
