Bulgarian PM Shares Photo With Donald Trump

Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borisov was photographed with the President of the United States, Donald Trump and his wife, Melania Trump. The picture was taken after the UN meeting "Global Call to Action on the World Drug Problem.”

Borisov shared the news on his Facebook profile. He said: “Pureheartedly, I give the opportunity for new “analysis”, “suggestions”, “interpretations” and statements about this picture [smiley face] however, this is just White House protocol.”

A simple handshake between or a picture of political leaders may not be that much of a big deal in the world of diplomacy. However, the handshake between Trump and Borisov was a notable moment in Bulgaria. Speculation, jokes, and memes popped up about this moment, usually at the expense of the Bulgarian PM. Some saw it as an attempt by Borisov to associate and promote himself with the Trump movement.

The two politicians are somewhat similar in their oftentimes brash behavior that's untypical in mainstream politics. However, Borisov was doing that sort of thing a good decade before Trump stepped in the center of the political stage.
