Donald Trump apparently refused to shake Angela Merkel's hand during a joint appearance at the White House.

The pair held an awkward meeting that could help determine the future of the transatlantic alliance and shape the working relationship between two of the world's most powerful leaders.

Although the American President greeted the German Chancellor with a handshake upon her arrival at the White House, he appeared to ignore requests to do so as the pair sat together later in front of TV cameras.

In footage of the photo opportunity, as photographers call for the two to shake hands, Merkel can be heard saying: "Do you want to have a handshake?"

Trump briefly turns towards her, but continues sitting with his legs apart and hands together.

She then turns back to face the cameras, smiling thinly.

At least Merkel didn't have to wear a hijab before being refused a handshake. Trump had other reasons than superstition, like her almost singlehandedly destroying Europe, for example.

The incident will definitely not be repeated when coming French president Marine Le Pen arrives at the White House later this year. She will receive so many handshakes that she will need a hand massage afterwards.
