I believe that Tx  is correct on this one. In all  the war movies that I have seen of WWII   every time that two orfficers one German and one US meet especially when theyr were taking prisoners. they saluted each other. as a deference of being military men fighting for their own country.

 A post out of context.  This is a frame out of a video of the event.  He was following protocol in returning a salute from the North Korean general:

 

https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/14/politics/trump-north-korea-salute/index.html

 

"In the military, returning a salute from a military officer of a friendly foreign nation is common practice for US military officers and considered a display of military professionalism. There is no rule that a US president is obliged to return a salute, which is considered a sign of mutual respect."

 

So where did you become aware of military customs and courtesies?

Every dead President must be spinning in their grave as they watched "SPANKY" Trump, THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, salute a general of an enemy.

 

This picture is headlining the news in North Korea.

 

I almost threw up.
