"It was not innocent" | Macron speaks on long handshake with Trump

Share

Donald Trump's weird pseudo-alpha handshake is common knowledge by now.

Quoted in the Sunday newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche, Macron said, "my handshake with him, it wasn't innocent", the Associated Press reported Sunday. "I asked him if he'd seen the videos of the handshakes and if he indeed had a chance to warn Macron", Capehart wrote in a column published Friday.

"One must show that you won't make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicise things, either", Macron added.

According to Macron, the tense exchange ahead of Thursday's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit was "a moment of truth" between the two political leaders.

Congratulations to both leaders for emerging from the summit with all of their hands intact.

After the awkward handshake, Macron met with a slew of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders, including Trump during a summit.

Macron, attempting to maintain the deal, put Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdoğan together in operating from a position of showing "strength". "Trump seems to just want his hand back".

"Donald Trump, the President of Turkey or the President of Russian Federation are of a mindset of power relations, which doesn't bother me", Macron said. Trump hasn't done a lot of public speaking during his big trip overseas.
