Spicer thinks Trump didn’t hear Merkel’s handshake request

Mar 20, 2017 @ 8:59

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has an explanation after US President Donald Trump did not respond to German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s handshake request.

At the White House during her visit, Merkel suggested a handshake but got no response.

“I don’t think he heard the question,” Agence France-Presse (AFP), in an article published on March 19, reported Spicer as telling the German weekly Der Spiegel.

Merkel and Trump shook hands at the White House’s entrance before the incident, AFP reported.

Spicer’s quote was translated into English from the weekly’s German website, it said.
