Angela Merkel Not Grabbed By Donald Trump In White House

March 17, 2017

Donald Trump did not extend his hand to shake German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s in an Oval Office photo op, a courtesy usually extended to foreign leaders visiting the White House.  It was a shoddy display from Trump.   Trump sat next to Merkel in front of a fireplace for the brief photo-op.

“Very good,” Trump said to assembled reporters when asked about what the two leaders discussed. “Lots of things.”

“Very good, thanks,” Merkel said in German.

But Trump hardly looked at Merkel and, when the photo op ended, didn’t move in for a handshake.

Given what Trump likes to grab on women I think Merkel came out on the winning side.
