trump macron handshake

Before leaving France as part of his visit for Bastille Day celebrations, Donald Trump enthusiastically shook French President Emmanuel Macron’s hand for about twenty-five seconds Friday, CNN reports.

At one point, he shook Macron and his wife Brigitte’s hands at the same time.

Trump has drawn attention for his awkward and aggressive hand shaking on state visits in the past.

Before their first meeting in Brussels back in May, the French ambassador has once even tried to warn Macron that Trump would try to shake his hand hard.

Earlier this visit, Trump told the French first lady that she was “beautiful” and in “such good shape.”
