Does Donald Trump know how to shake hands? The President is being mercilessly mocked over his embarrassing handshake with the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzō Abe.

During a photo op between the President and Prime Minster, Donald Trump aggressively reached for the Prime Minster’s hand and preceded to shake, pat, and pull it for an absurd 19 seconds. And Prime Minster Abe’s face says it all. You could almost hear his sigh of relief as he rolled his eyes and distanced himself from President Trump. For his part, President Trump thought the handshake went really well and gave the cameras two thumbs up

Yet this is far from the first time the President has had a cringe-worthy handshake. He reportedly uses the “pull in” technique. The President appears to yank at other people’s hands during the handshake. By doing this, Donald Trump also drags the other person closer to him.

As NY Mag says, this could be “some type of power-executive move Trump uses to demonstrate dominance over his handshaking partners.” Handshakes and body language can say a lot. And the President wants to seem more powerful and make it look like the other person is coming to him. Really, though, it just looks ridiculous.

And this has been going on for a while. As Mashable notes, Trump’s bad technique has been documented since as early as 2012. Recently, people have pointed out the President’s awkward and aggressive handshakes with Mitt Romney, Neil Gorsuch, Vice President Mike Pence, James Comey, Rex Tillerson, former Apprentice contestants and more.

So why does Donald Trump have such a strange handshake technique? Well, first of all, the President hates shaking hands. He previously said that he’s a “clean hands freak” and has called shaking hands “one of the curses of American society.” Or he could just be embarrassed by all of those tiny hands jokes he’s faced.
