President Donald Trump saved Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell from an apparent fall by locking arms with him following a press conference in the Rose Garden of the White House on Monday, and the internet loved it.
As the president and veteran senator finished a joint press conference on tax reform, party unity, and how “outstanding” their relationship is, McConnell appeared to narrowly avoid a tumble before Trump steadied him in a tender moment between the two.
Twitter users and journalists latched onto the event minutes after the press conference ended, with many expressing disbelief at the two embattled leaders holding hands:
Watch video of the moment below:
McConnell and Trump (holding hands?) have exited their unscheduled press conference after about 40 minutes of questions.
