Official representative of the us President Sean Spicer explained why Donald trump doesn’t shake hands with Federal Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel during their meeting at the White house.

According to Spicer, the incident around which the media blew up a big scandal happened because of a misunderstanding, reports “Russian conversation”.

“I don’t think he ( trump – ed.) heard the question,” – said the press Secretary of the White house.

We will remind, during a photo shoot at the residence of the American President Merkel appealed to Trump, “Mr. President, can we shake hands?”. However, the White house has ignored this appeal.

After a meeting with the head of the German government trump said that Berlin owed Washington and NATO more money for security.

In turn, Germany declared that do not intend to return the debts mentioned by the American President.
