French president Emmanuel Macron states that the handshake with US president Donald Trump ‘wasn’t innocent’.
The handshake was also seemingly awkward for Washington Post reporter Phillip Rucker, who was in the room at the time.
“They shook hands for an extended period of time. Each president gripped the other’s hand with considerable intensity, their knuckles turning white and their jaws clenching and faces tightening”, Rucker stated.
He described it on Twitter.
