The Canadian Prime Minister found himself sat between Mr Bolsonaro and Chinese president Xi Jinping during the summit in Osaka, Japan. As tensions between Canada and China rise over trade issues, Mr Trudeau turned to Mr Bolsonaro to offer him a handshake. But in awkward footage, Mr Trudeau’s hand is left flailing as Mr Bolsonaro acknowledges him before quickly turning away.
Mr Trudeau has since been savaged on Twitter for the awkward moment.
One said: “Trudeau is a walking embarrassment.”
While another added: “Trudeau-No-Mates.”
However, one Twitter user explained Mr Trudeau is pointing out the person to the left and not trying to shake his hand.
