New to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit, the U.S. president (C) stumbled a bit with the traditional group handshake, not sure of passing which hand to whom. He finally got it right as he crossed his arms and shook with Vietnam's Prime Minister Phúc (L) and Philippines President Duterte (R) at the opening ceremony of the summit in Manila, Philippines, on Nov. 13, 2017.
