Trump And Putin Shake Hands At APEC [VIDEO]
President Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin shook hands at a summit in Vietnam on Friday.
The two world leaders stood next to one another during a class photo for APEC, the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation, and shared a handshake before posing for the photo.
Trump seemed to hit Putin with his signature handshake, where he pulls his counterpart’s arm and uses his left arm to pat them on the bicep. Trump gave Putin an extra pat on the back after the handshake ended.

Putin didn’t pull Trump’s arm back or reciprocate the pat on the bicep, but he did received Trump with a warm smile.
The last time that the two men shook hands at the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, they were sitting down from one another, which left little room for Trump to manipulate the shake. (RELATED: WATCH: Trump And Putin Finally Meet — The Handshake)
