Vice President Mike Pence triggered an awkward moment during his speech at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday.

Pence told attending international allies and foreign policy officials: “I bring greetings from the 45th president of the United States of America, President Donald Trump.”

Not a peep was heard from the audience in response.

After a full four seconds of silence, Pence continued on with his speech.
