Watch Emmanuel Macron Dodge Donald Trump To Hug Angela Merkel

Video footage has emerged online showing France’s newly elected president Emmanuel Macron appearing to dodge U.S. President Donald Trump to hug German Chancellor Angela Merkel instead at the NATO summit in Brussels on Thursday.

In the clip, Macron walks up a red carpet toward a group of world leaders. He seems to be making a beeline for Trump, whose hands are outstretched, apparently in anticipation of a warm welcome.

But just feet away, Macron deftly swerves and embraces German Chancellor Angela Merkel instead. He then shakes hands with other leaders, before eventually entering into another fierce handshake-off with Trump.

Macron shared the video via his official Twitter account late Thursday.
