Donald Trump met with German chancellor Angela Merkel today in the Oval Office, and it was extraordinarily awkward.
The two leaders sit next to each other, with Merkel obviously attempting to play nice (which must’ve been difficult), and Trump glaring at the cameras.
The press asks, “How did your talks go, Mr. President?”
Trump responds, “Very good.”
The press member follows up, “Did you talk about NATO?”
Trump says, “Many things.”
Finally, Merkel turns to Trump and says, “Do you want to have a handshake?”
Trump stares at the floor, ignoring her.
And that’s it.
No handshake. No talking to one another.
