Putin, Trump Meet In Vietnam: This Handshake Followed


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…


  1. Keep your “friends” close – keep your “enemies” even closer! At the flip of a coin, the one could easily become the other!!

  2. I knew Trump would have a successful trip, he’s a successful person, understands people, doing a better job then anyone thought possible. Now wait for those on the left start their Propaganda and Deceitful Lies, they will Up the Ante on Trump. Watch for it.

  3. Tillerson has been spending a lot of time with Russia Lavrov, trying to propose them that USA is No 1 and and Lavrov answer was NIET on all of them. Syria with Assad confirmed by Russia. Russia helping NOKO citizens to survive etc.
    Pres. Trump knew the answers and did not ask Putin get out of Crimea etc..
    Putin is as per THE ECONOMIST, the TSAR and hoping that the USA understand that nice try by Trump but the world in 2017 is not the world of 1945 and is now MULTIPOLAR.
    Pres Trump should keep promoting the US jobs, and products.

  4. Yes, the Left will continue their barrage of lies against President Trump. They have already started with President Trump’s visit to Japan. His Japanese counterpart was feeding the fish in a pond by throwing a handful of food into the pond and then he threw in the rest of the bag. President Trump followed suit, but when CNN aired the incident, they had cut out the scene of his counterpart throwing the rest of his bag into the pond. Trump was just following protocol and CNN said he had disgraced our Country by throwing the rest of his bag of fish food into the pond. Just about the time you think the media can’t sink any lower….., THEY DO! I believe in “Freedom of Speech” but the American media should have to suffer consequences for the out-and-out lies they are feeding the low-information people in this Country!! They lie, cheat and will stoop to any level of deceit to achieve their political goals. Sadly, they will find out one day that Hell hath plenty of room. Meanwhile, we are forced to put up with shenanigans like this!! It just isn’t right!
