In my opinion, Trump is OK here. He gave her hand at the beginning and he is not a dog to do what a journalist (most of them are dorks) order up. ....I'M HERE ALSO TO ASK YOU ABOUT HELP. PLEASE READ MY PETITION TO THE SURGEON / HOSPITAL.. IT'S VERY IMPORTANT FOR ME. I need 50 000 SIGNATURES to save my life:

Oh God, here we go again... The whole world still wonders how this man became president and in this comment section you see exaclty how.. only islamophobia, racism, stupidity spread by these dumb americans...
what a miserable posture of Merkel. She sits twisted without any dignity. And the media call her the most powerful woman on earth. She is just a spineless nothingness.

Ich begreife diesen Trump einfach nicht.... Das hat doch was mit Anstand zutun. Wäre ich Merkel, würde ich mich ein bisschen blöd vorkommen. Aber Gottseidank bin ich nicht Merkel.
What an idiot...

You have "germafobia" by your own admission Trump, yet you shake jerk and pull all other world leaders hands and here you display disrespect toward 1. a lady and 2. a leader of one of your strongest allies. You pushing the envelope too far..You have many good attributes yet you are arrogant and show strong signs of a typical narcissist... sadly no level of treatment nor medication can help with that as is the case with people who are psychopaths

Trumpnis an asshole

I understand you guys "hate him" (lmao) but come on. If you're not going to act like an adult and you're so fucking upset, then leave America. I won't miss you.
No handshake for the Nazis
He did not snub her, look at his face for the clue! He is having a narcissistic orgasm...and each click of all those cameras makes him wonder how a prostitute married, pussy grabbing, trashy class businessman can find himself in such a position.

Just read Trumps interview with Time magazine and thought that this kind of reaction, during a meeting with other world leaders and what he said to Time, could be the start of Alzheimer's . There is definitely treatment out now he can take for that. And It could spin off into a lot of money for Alzheimer's research. That would be great.
Hate to say it, but I hope it's mini strokes instead. There is a lot more success treating strokes.

Oh, the stories she will be taking home with her.
geo rob
He may just be hard of hearing or had another mini stroke before the meeting. A series of mini strokes might explain a few behaviors he has exhibited for the last year or so. Maybe, with treatment, they can reverse the effects it might be having on him. Hope so.
