President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have had their first official meeting before a more formal sit-down later Friday.
The two leaders shook hands away from the press at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit, but the moment was captured in a video posted on the German Cabinet’s Facebook page.

The handshake came as Trump and Putin prepare for their first bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the G-20 meeting in Hamburg. Read more at The Hill.
