Donald Trump says 'smart' and 'strong' Emmanuel Macron 'loves holding my hand' Donald Trump has spoken out on his notorious handshake with French President Emmanuel Macron. The handshake – which went on for a long time – was explained by Mr Trump in an interview with the New York Times. The President commented multiple times that the French President enjoys "holding his hand". He said: "He’s a great guy. Smart. Strong. Loves holding my hand." Mr Trump later repeated this remark, commenting: " People don’t realize he loves holding my hand. And that’s good, as far as that goes." Ramming the point home, he said a third time: "I mean, really. He’s a very good person. And a tough guy, but look, he has to be. I think he is going to be a terrific president of France. But he does love holding my hand." Donald Trump is famous for his vice-like handshake, which has squashed the digits of other world leaders. However, Mr Macron gave as good as he got, squeezing Donald Trump right back when they met last week.
