Handshake Between Trump and Trudeau
Rarely have silent hands spoken so loudly. A photo captured in the Oval Office this week of US President Donald Trump sitting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has gone viral on social media – not because of anything explicitly stated during that meeting, but as a result instead of the mute dialogue that appears to take place between the two leaders’ hands. Caught in the millisecond before Trudeau responds to Trump’s invitation to shake hands, the image freezes the pair in what seems instead like a withering rebuff.
