Video by Tom Compagnoni

We've got to hand it to Donald Trump -- he's not one to give up.

So when he was left hanging for a high five by fellow Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson at the Republican Debate on Wednesday, he went in for a handshake instead. Or is that a fist pump?

You're welcome.
