Eliot Engel refuses to shake Donald Trump’s hand


The New York Democratic representative, Eliot Engel, has refused to shake the hand of President Trump just before his address to Congress.

Eliot Engel is well known by our readers: he is the chief spokesperson for those on the Left seeking to expand Israel’s borders. He played a key role in the opposition against Iran and the wars against Libya and Syria.
