US President Donald Trump has been mocked for coloring in the American flag incorrectly during a visit to a children’s hospital in Ohio.

The US president was photographed adding a blue stripe to an outline of the Star - Spangled Banner, rather than correctly filling in the 13 alternating red and white stripes, representing the original colonies.

Trump was accused of hypocrisy following his attacks on NFL players for failing to respect the flag and kneel for the national anthem before games. The Republican also, notoriously, hugged an American flag after making a speech attacking illegal immigration.

Activist and songwriter Holly Figueroa O’Reilly said: “American flag’s stripes are red and white. Trump should know this, considering the fit he throws when someone kneels at a football game, ‘disrespecting the flag’.”

The photo of the president’s flag coloring session was first tweeted by the secretary of state for health and human services, Alex Azar.

The added blue line was quickly spotted online, as Twitter users speculated whether it was a simple mistake or a deliberate act.

Several people spotted the resemblance to the colors of the Russian flag, and the flag of the Netherlands.

Meanwhile, Trump’s supporters claimed the president was in fact paying tribute to the police with the added blue line.
