Yep, the president of Tajikistan damn near pulled Trump’s arm off at the shoulder when they shook hands

It seems president Trump isn’t the only one who likes to menacingly yank the hand of anyone who gets too close for comfort.

Check out this awesome footage from the summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this past Sunday where the president of Tajikistan, Emomali Rahmon (who is built like an Olympic weightlifter), grabbed Trump’s hand and shook it for all it’s worth (about 4 billion dollars, if the reports are to be believed).

Of course, Trump has made a reputation for being quite the hand crusher, his numerous inappropriate/failed/humiliating attempts at ‘handshaking’ going viral over the past six months.

And as far as handshakes go, this one wasn’t quite in the league of the infamous Latham-Howard one on the eve of the 2004 Australian Federal Election.

But, heck, it wasn’t far behind.
