This is a very big deal to men right? Especially in the business world... or is this a myth? I've watched several clips of him shaking hands with various people and I don't know why but it really, really bothers me. Any insights? My instincts say he really is an orangutan and this is some weird dominance thing. Our president is broken...

John Oliver has a decent compilation:

Culture clash I would surmise.

Meeting and Greeting

A handshake is appropriate upon meeting. The Japanese handshake is limp and with little or no eye contact.

Some Japanese bow and shake hands. The bow is a highly regarded greeting to show respect and is appreciated by the Japanese. A slight bow to show courtesy is acceptable.

Nooo, seriously watch him shake anyone's hand. It's so weird. He jerks them forward then pats their hand.

Truth be told kids these days don't shake hands,if they do it's a wimpy handshake,we used to do buisness with a handshake,and while shaking ones hand your analyzing,you can look at all the pictures you want,it's between 2 people

Hope I'm not breaking any forum rules here, but I thought this article had an interesting take on it and in my uneducated opinion, I tend to agree: Donald Trump's handshake: The real meaning explained by body language expert

Based on that pic I would say he's looking for a hi-5 so when they start to shake hands he jerks and says "NO SHAKE HANDS!!!"
