Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Didn’t Shake Hands Before the Presidential Debate

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton did not shake hands before the second presidential debate began Sunday in St. Louis.

The pair of presidential candidates instead nodded and politely smiled at each other as they approached the center of the stage for the town-hall format debate at Washington University.

It did not appear that one snubbed the other, although several viewers noticed the lack of handshake.

Trump and Clinton shook hands during the first presidential debate last month at Hofstra University.
