Donald Trump Angela Merkel Handshake Memes

Donald Trump Refused to Shake Angela Merkel's Hand and the Internet Was in Disbelief

By now, you might know just how weird President Trump's handshakes are. They last too long, are awkward, and feel like he's trying to send a message of dominance. That's why the internet slightly lost it when Trump refused to shake the hand of Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, during a meeting at the White House.

Yes, that's right. The President refused to shake hands with one of our country's closet allies. POLITICO captured the awkward moment in a tweet.

The internet couldn't believe happened and immediately started wondering what Merkel's thoughts were.

Most people just feel super embarrassed to have seen that moment.

And some can't believe this is how President Trump is acting.

Others are applauding Merkel for shrugging off the moment.

Some believe Merkel deserves something nice for having to put up with this.

Hopefully, Trump learns from this and shakes the hand of every world leader — especially our allies.
