Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron Battle in the Handshake Wars

Donald Trump is making all kinds of friends at the NATO Leaders Summit. His latest BFF is French President Emmanuel Macron. Watch as the two greet each other with a friendly handshake.

The handshake lasts five seconds and is more intense than the NBA playoffs. Watch Trump closely. He doesn’t do his usual “pulling in” power move. Either Macron has him well scouted or Trump decides to take pity on an unworthy challenger.

Trump learns from his mistakes the second time around.

He pulls him in immediately upon grabbing his hand and gives him a death stare as he does it. “Puny French man. You may have handshaked me to a draw the first time. But I have learned from my mistakes, done 100 curls and stress ball exercises, and am now stronger than ever.”

Trump using handshakes to show how powerful he is is my favorite thing about him. He’s the president of the United States, but that doesn’t mean a thing unless he has the handshake to back it up.
