While Trump's remarks were odd, to say the least, what immediately captured the attention of the internet was the Italian translator's reaction to Trump's words about Syria and sand.

Of course, it's hard to say what the translator was really thinking while she was taking notes of Trump's statements. Maybe she was just concentrating hard and lifted her head at an unfortunate moment. Maybe she was genuinely puzzled, as we're sure many would be at Trump's remarks.
