Moment Donald Trump seems to be snubbed by new French President

A handshake Moment Donald Trump seems to be snubbed by new French President
Andrew Cummings | 29 May, 2017, 12:06

Bloomberg, a financial information agency, devoted a whole article to an analysis of the comic scene for Emmanuel Macron: "It took the French president only six seconds to make Trump better than Trump with A handshake that showed the world that there was a new leader on the world stage".

Macron and May first met in February in London.

French President Emmanuel Macron told his USA counterpart Donald Trump on Thursday not to take any hasty decision on a global climate change deal that the American president had criticized during his campaign.

'I know what you're gonna do!'

TAORMINA, Italy European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker denied on Friday that U.S. President Donald Trump had aggressively condemned German trade policies during at meeting in Brussels on Thursday. With their jaws clenched, their faces alternating between smiles and grimaces, the two men shook hands until the knuckles of Mr. Trump turned pale. "Trump reached in first, but then he tried to release, twice, but Macron kept his grip until letting go".

Moses has no plan to stop Arsenal star Sanchez
We've got the league title and they're going to want to win because they missed out on top four. Should Arsenal win, he would set a record for most FA Cup wins as a manager.

Trump has said the deadly attack in Manchester on Monday showed the threat had to be met and defeated but faces pressure from Britain after key details of the investigation were leaked in the U.S. press.

Trump's handshakes have gained popularity around the world for being longer than expected and depicting his signature tug-shake-tug-some-more move.

Mr Macron said he respected Mr Trump's decision to put the Paris agreements under review. There was the freakish 19-second handshake with a visibly bewildered Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, and the time the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, seemed to beat his unusual handshake style. And when he met the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, he failed to shake her hand during a photo op.

However, by now, most of the leaders are well-prepared for the tug so it seems that Trump's technique has started to fail.
