- French Squeeze: Macron Beats Trump at Round Two of Handshake Game in Canada
The marks the French President left on the US President after gripping his hand, went viral. The gripping presidential rivalry between Trump and Macron started last year in July during Donald Trump’s visit to Paris, which gave the social media users something to bite into with an unusual 29 second-long handshake.
La Malbaie, Canada, where the G7 Summit took place on June 8-9, has become the site for not only heated political debates and a showdown over the trade war and the Iran deal, but for a rivalry between two of the world’s readers. Posing for photos in front of numerous cameras, French President Emmanuel Macron, 40, and US leader Donald Trump, 71, has generated a proper Twitter storm with their handshake, which went slightly beyond the usual diplomatic courtesy. Macron grabbed Trump’s hand so hard, it left pale marks of his finger on Trump’s hand.
