No Oval Office handshake between Trump, Merkel


WASHINGTON, DC. MARCH 17. President Donald Trump apparently refused to shake hands with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during her visit to the White House Friday, during an Oval Office photo-op.

The President said his meeting with the Chancellor was “very good” and said the pair talked about “many things.”

When asked to shake hands by reporters and photographers, Trump and Merkel remained stationary. It wasn’t clear if the two heard the request, and the two had shaken hands when Merkel arrived at the White House and they shook hands again after a White House news conference.

Trump repeatedly accused Merkel during his campaign trail of “ruining Germany,” citing the nation’s policies allowing refugees into the nation.

Merkel, who had good relationship with former President Barack Obama, is concerned with the President’s negative comments about NATO and the European Union.

 

 


 

No hubo apretón de manos entre Trump y Merkel en la oficina oval

WASHINGTON DC. MARZO 17. El presidente Donald Trump aparentemente se negó a estrechar la mano con la canciller alemana Angela Merkel durante su visita a la Casa Blanca el viernes, durante una foto de la Oficina Oval.

El presidente dijo que su reunión con el canciller fue “muy buena” y dijo que la pareja habló de “muchas cosas”.

Cuando los reporteros y fotógrafos le pidieron que se dieran la mano, Trump y Merkel permanecieron inmóviles. No es claro si los dos escucharon la petición, los dos se estrecharon la mano cuando Merkel llegó a la Casa Blanca y  después de una conferencia de prensa en la Casa Blanca.

Trump repetidamente acusó a Merkel durante su campaña de “arruinar Alemania”, citando las políticas de la nación que permiten a los refugiados entrar en ese país.

Merkel, que tenía una buena relación con el ex presidente Barack Obama, se ha mostrado preocupada por los comentarios negativos del presidente sobre la OTAN y la Unión Europea.
