Melania Trump appeared to swat away the hand of her husband, the U.S. President, as they were welcomed to Tel Aviv, Israel on Monday.
Video of the couple’s arrival shows them walking a red carpet after meeting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara.
At one point, Donald appeared to reach for Melania’s hand before she shooed it away.
Social media users took note of the encounter, before the President delivered a speech touting “the unbreakable bond” between Israel and the United States.
The couple later visited the Western Wall and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.
Trump spent two days in Israel as he looks into jumpstarting the peace process in the Middle East and met Israeli and Palestinian leaders.
On the last leg of the overseas trip, Melania appears to have refused to hold the U.S. President’s hand again upon arrival in Rome. The Trumps landed in Italy when Trump appeared to reach for the First Lady’s hand and she yet again, seems to have avoided holding her husband’s hand.
But, after Trump met with Pope Francis at the Vatican it seems a miracle happened! Melania and The Donald finally held hands while visiting the Sistine Chapel.
