Putin, Trump Meet in Vietnam: This Is the Handshake That Followed (Video)

Friday, November 10, 2017 15:11
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

While officials cited “scheduling conflicts” that dashed hopes of a bilateral meeting between President Trump and President Putin on the sidelines of the APEC summit, the two ‘old friends’ came face-to-face during the photo-op at the start of the conference… and the handshake took place…

The two were all smiles while shaking hands during the photo call

Preparing for the traditional leaders’ photo at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit – held this year in Da Nang, Vietnam – Putin had already taken his spot when Trump approached him, extending his hand. In the manner which has become famous, the US president then held onto Putin’s hand for several seconds, patting his counterpart on the back.

The leaders were dressed in Vietnamese national attire, in accordance with the informal APEC tradition. Both Putin and Trump put on blue shirts, while some of the other participants chose to wear white ones.

Notably the positioning of the leaders this year…right next to the Vietnamese leader and Putin…

Quite different from that of three years ago when President Obama appeared to be demoted to the old wives club…

    Trump shook hands with one of the most murderous treacherous cheap little thief you could find in Russia. The basturd took off with a Superbowl ring when the owner took it off to show it to him.

    Telling me that Putin is a kleptomaniac. :twisted:

  • Hi NSA, kiss my artichoke

    There ya have it folks! Collusion plain and simple!
    “Hey buddy, thanks for the win.”
    “No problem, comrade. De uh, uranium will still be delivered? Da?”
    “Uh… Well… We’re under new management now, I didn’t make that deal.”
    No further meetings scheduled. :lol:
    “Russians Get Trump Elected!!!”

    I like Putin and Assad. While I am willing to adopt a ‘wait and see’ position on Trump, the rest of our elected federal officials can be characterized as the ‘WORST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD’.

      I hope you ‘re not a journalist. Putin likes to kill them. If you are left alive that means you are a kiss-asser.

      Dam and mom would be proud. :twisted:

    Do you want to be cordial friends with Putin, like Bushes when they had Putin visit their Maine cottage or at war with him? Wake up and stop swallowing the Clinton Boogieman thing.
