Press Secretary Sean Spicer defended Donald Trump’s failure to shake German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hand on Friday, saying Trump didn’t hear Merkel’s request.

Spicer told Germany’s Der Spiegel that Friday’s incident was a misunderstanding.

“I do not believe he heard the question,” Spicer told the paper.

The press was gathered in the Oval Office Friday to take photos and video of the two world leaders meeting.

Merkel could be heard leaning toward Trump and asking, “Do you want to have a handshake?”

Trump did not shake Merkel’s hand, leading some on social media to characterize the action as a rejection of Merkel’s request.

What do you think? I can hear her…and I believe Trump can hear her just fine.
