He is cool like that!!

Fist bump is an American thing! An acknowledgement and a confirmation that it is all good. Fist bumps in the life of President Obama took a life of its own when the  then "Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama  and his wife Michelle Obama bump fists at an election night rally at the Xcel Energy Center June 3, 2008 in St. Paul, Minnesota and the next day he won Democratic presidential nomination after the primaries in South Dakota and Montana.

Now  Fist Bumping is becoming Obama's trademark of salutation and acknowledgement.
