Twitter Is SHREDDING Trump For Refusing To Shake Angela Merkel’s Hand

One of the simplest acts of diplomacy for any President is to sit with the leader of a friendly nation and make nice in front of the cameras for a couple of minutes. At least, it used to be simple. Donald Trump took the opportunity to spark international outrage by refusing to shake hands with the leader of our most powerful ally in Europe.

As usual, Twitter was watching and delivered the perfect responses to the insult:

If Trump is hell-bent on alienating our allies and taking our country down, at least Twitter will ensure we go down laughing.
