Trump, Macron handshake video going viral on Youtube –Who won?

ViewsHeadlines Desk,

Donald Trump’s distaste for handshake is well-known. Around a decade ago, the US President had talked about banning the practice of handshake. Now as he is on his first world tour after occupying White House for more than 100 days, he is not just made to shake hands but also huge world leaders including the octogenarian Saudi monarch Shah Salman, Israeli Prime Minister and many others.

While his distaste for handshake is due to the fact that the former real estate baron fears germs, he didn’t know that there are world leaders who also would like to check the power of his bone. This is the reason that he looked completely nervous and taken aback while shaking hand of the new French President Emmanuel Macron.

During their first meeting, before a NATO summit in Brussels on Thursday, the two world leaders locked hands for so long that knuckles started turning white. It was the US President who had to try to salvage his price by trying to pull his hand away. Nonetheless, 39-year old Macron, who is almost half of Trump’s age was not ready to let it slip away so early. The French leader held the shake for a few seconds more. Both men’s jaws seemed to clench.




I am sure Trump will certainly term the handshake barbaric. In his 1997 book “The Art of the Comeback,” Trump wrote he’d “often thought of taking out a series of newspaper ads encouraging the abolishment of the handshake.”


There is no denying that it was the power handshake that later forced Trump to pull his hands immediately after shaking hands with Macron during the NATO summit. Trump extended his hand to Macron while the leaders gathered prior to the remarks at the unveiling of NATO’s Article 5 and Berlin Wall memorials.

The presidents shook hands momentarily before Mr. Trump quickly pulled back and they shared a laugh. He didn’t want to face the same embarrassment that he had faced merely a day ago.
