Trump's visit to Israel was upstaged by this little incident at the airport
President Trump's first official overseas trip was overshadowed by a viral video which shows Melania apparently brushing off her husband's attempt to hold her hand as they disembark from the plane in Israel.
The moment occurred yesterday after Air Force One landed in Tel Aviv. In the video, recorded by Israeli news publisher Haaretz, Donald Trump, who can be seen walking beside Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara, reached back to give Melania his hand, which she appears to slap away.
And the incident has, naturally, been the talk of Twitter town ever since.

Melania's relationship with her husband has been under a great deal of scrutiny for a while now. Her sorrowful looks whenever she's filmed in the company of the president have become fodder for countless gifs and memes, while the hashtag #FreeMelania is often used on social media to show solidarity with the first lady.
Most of America feels the same, Melania pic.twitter.com/Ibde9GWm5u
