FRENCH PRESIDENT ADMITS HE INTENTIONALLY SQUEEZED TRUMP’S HAND DURING HANDSHAKE

French President Emmanuel Macron admitted that his white-knuckle handshake with U.S. President Donald Trump was not “innocent”.

President Macron called the handshake a “moment of truth”.

In the photo, it appears that President Trump is wincing.

“One must show that you won’t make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicize things, either,” said President Macron.

President Trump has a history of applying pressure when shaking people’s hands.

Some scientists might classify this behavior as an attempt by President Trump to assert a dominance hierarchy with him at its pinnacle.

President Macron, perhaps mindful of this, wanted to show the American President that he was not a pushover.
