President Donald Trump’s farewell handshake with French President Emmanuel Macron lasted roughly 25 seconds, but it seems like an eternity on video.

The two world leaders forged a new friendship during the president’s trip to France ahead for Bastille Day, according to Trump.

As you can see, the handshake begins like any other standard handshake:
