Bill Clinton & Melania Trump Shake Hands at First Presidential Debate

Bill Clinton and Melania Trump share a somewhat tense handshake at the start of the very first Presidential Debate held at Hofstra University on Monday (September 26) in Hempstead, New York.

Their respective spouses, Deomcratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump, took the stage moments later to kick off the debate with another handshake that appeared a bit stiff, though both couples managed to flash some smiles!

The event, moderated by NBC’s Lester Holt, marks the first of three presidential debates for the 2016 Election.

“Looking forward to tonight’s debate knowing that millions of Americans will see the @HillaryClinton I’ve known for over 40 years,” Bill tweeted before the showdown.
