Sealing the Nomination With a Kiss: The Awkward Moment Trump Tried to Smooch Running Mate
Things got awkward quickly in Cleveland as Trump puckered up for his running mate after Pence made his formal VP nomination acceptance speech.
The two men shook hands and Trump patted Pence on the back, then the real estate tycoon attempted to give the Indiana governor a kiss on the forehead while his running mate appeared to pull back.
Twitter lit up after the strange moment occurred.
