When Japanese media asked President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to shake hands, Trump pulled Abe’s hand closer, patted it several times and held on for 19 seconds, according to the foreign press. When they completed the handshake, Trump pulled away and Abe made a regrettable facial expression.
“Strong hands,” Trump said to Abe as the media left the room.
“By promising man eternal life, religion deprived him of temporal life, by teaching him to trust in God’s help it took away his trust in his own powers; by giving him faith in a better life in heaven, it destroyed his faith in a better life on earth and his striving to attain such a life.
” - Ludwig Feuerbach, 1851
