Emmanuel Macron’s Trump handshake went viral because it left quite a mark
Donald Trump’s got a bit of history with handshakes as you’ll remember, and French president Emmanuel Macron was having none of it at the G7 conference.
Just take a look at this. Here is the French premier shaking hands with the so-called president.

Ouch. Zoom in close enough and you can almost see Macron’s fingerprint.
Trump, famous for his forceful handshake, has become a victim of Emmanuel Macron. See how the French left his mark on poor Donald’s hand. Force is strong with this one. pic.twitter.com/eeEhl2BTj0

It’s not the first time Macron has owned Trump with a handshake.
