Texas Governor Greg Abbott shared video of a “candid moment” with President Donald Trump.
The Republican governor was greeted by the president while the two were in Davos, Switzerland this week and Abbott’s encounter with Trump as he was leaving the World Economic Forum was caught on video.

The president stopped to greet Abbott on his way out and repeatedly asked him if he was okay.
“Are you okay? You want to come up with us?” Trump asked as he shook Abbott’s hand then leaned in to give him a hug and a pat on the back.
“I’ll give you a ride back,” the president added as he turned to those gathered, saying, “The great Governor of Texas, everybody! There’s nobody like him!”
Trump turned to the governor and again asked, “Are you okay?”
“I’m doing fabulous, thank you. And you’re doing great, too,” Abbott replied, politely declining Trump’s offer for a ride back to the U.S.
“We would love to,” he said, “But I’m here for a few more days. We got more deals to do.”
