President Trump is known for his rather vigorous handshakes. They’re meant to show some kind of bullshit alpha male dominance. But Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who met with Trump today in the White House, wasn’t having it.

Yes, Trudeau did eventually shake Trump’s hand. On more than one occasion even! But he didn’t let Trump dominate. And this photo, taken shortly before one of their handshakes in front of the press, really says it all.
