No pleasantries for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton before the third and final presidential debate. The two candidates did not shake hands before Wednesday’s event.
Trump and Clinton did not shake hands before the second debate either; they did greet each other with a handshake before the first debate.
The lack of handshake was not ignored by debate viewers on Twitter.
THERE WAS NO HANDSHAKE. I REPEAT: NO HANDSHAKE.
