President Obama, PM Trudeau and President Nieto's awkward handshake

President Obama, PM Trudeau and President Nieto's awkward handshake

President Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto just had the best three-way handshake of all time.

The three North American leaders met Tuesday at the North American Leaders’ Summit in Ottawa to discuss deepening their countries' economic ties and strengthening the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

"We will build upon this strong trilateral economic relationship, and further facilitate trade among our three countries, and improve the networks that allow us to produce products and services together," the three said in a joint statement.

But while the meeting appeared to be productive, the true scene stealer was the magnificently awkward handshake that took place during a photo-op between the three leaders.

PM Trudeau took control of the moment by doing a cross-over shake with both Obama and Nieto while Nieto tried to grab for Obama's other hand with his other hand. Seeing that Nieto missed, Trudeau then facilitated in what was truly a slam-dunk moment.

This isn't the first handshake situation Obama has found himself in. This March, Obama became the first sitting US president to visit Cuba in 88 years, while there an interesting handshake (or wristshake?) with Cuban President Raul Castro went viral.
