US President Donald Trump posted a picture on his Facebook page featuring hand shake with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"Honored to welcome Chancellor Merkel to the White House today. Our two nations share much in common, and our alliance is a symbol of strength to the world," the description to the photo says.

As it was reported earlier, US President Donald Trump appeared to ignore photographers’ request to shake hands with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during the meeting in White House.

Photographers asked the leaders to shake hands several times, but Trump did not react in any way. Then Merkel leaned over and repeated: "They want us to shake hands." But US President did not pay attention to this either.
