Diplomacy is an art. It can also be awkward. In a very public example of this fine line, it wasn't the warm relationship between President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that lit up the reactions on social media Friday.
The viral moments continued during a photo op in the Oval Office, when Japanese media asked the two to shake hands.

"Strong hands," Trump said to Abe as the media left the room.
