President Trump and new pal French President Emmanuel Macron shared another awkward handshake, roughly a month after their first white-knuckle embrace.
The pair were seen engaging in a tug-of-war handshake when they bumped into each other at the G20 conference in Germany Friday. The President then pulled Macron’s hand into his chest during the drawn-out embrace.

Later Friday Macron, who took office in May, caused a stir when he pushed through several of his fellow world leaders to stand to Trump’s right.
