Macron's party seen on top in French parliament election: polls

NY [U.S.A.], May 29: With US President Donald Trump's signature handshake managing to make highlights nearly every time, the newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron described his recent encounter with him as "the moment of truth". Mr. Trump finally seemed ready to pull away - but Macron evidently wasn't.

Mr Trump often seems to get the upper hand when it comes to such greetings - cue one with Japanese PM Shinzo Abe which lasted 19 seconds - and with supreme court nominee Neil Gorsuch, where the USA leader appeared to yank the judge's arm.

The newly elected president said the fierce handshake during their first official meeting on Thursday was "a moment of truth", in an interview with Le Journal du Dimanche. "Trump seems to just want his hand back". When Trump went in for the handshake, he was met with an unrelenting response, with Trudeau holding his arm steady and firm against any attempted yank.

Or from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who was caught in a long, rigorous handshake. "One of the things we do with our handshakes is we establish comfort".

"My handshake with [President Trump] was not innocent - not the alpha and the omega of a policy - but a moment of truth", he said.

"One must show that we won't make little concessions, even symbolic ones", Macron said.

Other recent polls have also suggested Macron's party would displace the left-wing Socialists as the largest party in the lower house of parliament and outrank the conservatives.

Macron, who is described as a political centrist (Trump is more chaotic but definitely towards the right or even "alt right"), recently beat right-leaning candidate Marine Le Pen in the French Presidential election.

Macron further stated that he doesn't see relationships in terms of a balance of power, neither believe in diplomacy by public abuse.
