President Trump is continuing to reassure the country that coronavirus will be contained and mitigated, and today held a press conference in the Rose Garden at the White House.
At the conclusion of one speaker’s remarks, he attempted to give the President an elbow bump, which is now the preferred greeting to avoid passing diseases.
Trump had a little trouble with the interaction:

Trump habitually went for the handshake, and at the last second shifted to the elbow bump, which he didn’t appear to be ready for.
“Oh! I like that,” Trump said. “That’s good.”
“You can practice that,” he said.
