President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were seated in the Oval Office posing for cameras when the press asked if the two would give them a handshake. Merkel began looking at Trump, who didn’t respond or make eye contact with the chancellor. The extremely awkward moment went viral immediately.
The leaders did ultimately shake hands later during the press conference, that was also awkward, since Trump warned Merkel that trade relations between Germany and the U.S. may be under review. “The U.S. has been treated unfairly, and that’s going to stop,” Trump said.
