An awkward moment developed between President Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel at a press availability at the White House Friday.

As the press was snapping photographs of the two powerful leaders, Merkel leaned over and asked Trump, “Do you want to have a handshake?”

Trump simply stared straight ahead and did not acknowledge her request.

The press, some of whom also asked about a handshake photo, was then shuffled out of the Oval Office.
