Melania Trump's Expression After Shaking Vladmir Putin's Hand Sets off Internet

Long week? Short list. Here's a roundup of the stories you missed Russian meddling job

President Donald Trump, Melania, and Putin posed for a photo before the two presidents' one-on-one meeting and joint press conference.

Melania, who is a few inches taller than the ex-spy strongman, also smiles during the handshake in an apparently natural way.

In the clip, Melania first appears eager to shake Putin's hand, smiling at him, making eye contact, and likely saying something polite.

Listen to what else has gone viral.

Twitter has dissected footage from the encounter and now, everyone's pointing out that seconds after shaking Putin's hand, Melania's expression melts into one of absolute horror.

One user, @daisygirlmg, wrote: 'She looks like she short-circuited there for a second'.

"She looks like she just stared into the eyes of evil." another commented.

The Seoul-based Shinil Group, which led the exploration that found the ship, hopes to raise it in October or November. Parts of the hull that were bombarded were in poor condition, but other parts of the hull had nearly no damage.

However, before the explosive press conference took place, viewers spotted a odd expression on Melania Trump's face.

The Helsinki summit has resulted in yet another spate of widespread criticism of POTUS, after he said he sided with Putin over his own nation's intelligence reports on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The President later rebuffed his comment, stating that he misspoke.

Amid bipartisan condemnation of his embrace of a longtime US enemy, Trump sought to end 27 hours of recrimination by delivering a rare admission of error Tuesday.

The President said: "In a key sentence in my remarks, I said the word "would" instead of 'wouldn't".

Melania Trump's facial expression after meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin has sparked Twitter reactions.
