Today, as previewed, Trump is meeting with his European nemesis, the green-wearing German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and will hold a press conference at 1:20pm, although what most really wanted to know is whether Trump would unleash the infamous "handshake" yet again.
This is what happened next according to CNBC's Steve Kopac:
"Can we get a handshake?" the press asks
Merkel looks at Trump
"Do You Want A Handshake?"
At that moment the press is ushered out without any handshake.

And that is all you need to know about the current state of US-German relations; you can ever drink right through the press conference.
