JK Rowling perfectly summed up the awkward Trump/Merkel handshake moment with one tweet
Enda Kenny's visit to the White House over the weekend may have gone swimmingly but the same can't be said for an other EU leader.

Naturally there were plenty of memes floating around on Twitter lampooning Trump over his handling of the situation but one of the most popular has come from Harry Potter author, JK Rowling.
