On Monday, President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump landed in Tel Aviv for the second stop of their international tour.

They were greeted by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara, along with other officials.

After posing for photos, the group walked down a red carpet away from the crowds. Netanyahu and his wife were holding hands, and it seems Trump tried to grab his wife's hand as well. But then...this happened.

Did Melania just refuse to hold Trump's hand? ๐Ÿค”

Did she just bat his hand away?

Most of America feels the same, Melania

A lot of people said it sure looked like Melania Trump slapped her husband's hand away from her.

LOL! Melania in Tel Aviv is as MISERABLE, as Melania in the U.S. Watch her push away the CREEP's hand. PRICELESS๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚โ€ฆ https://t.co/Y06e3NLYv2

Some were all about it.

What did Melania's 5 fingers say to Trump's hand? SLAP! ๐Ÿ˜ญ

"We are all Melania."

We are all Melania. https://t.co/rGWSPrhvXc

Some wondered what she was thinking.

@fellowgoodrobin @LeahHardingAJE @raggapegs With that move on the international stage, I think Melania was deliberaโ€ฆ https://t.co/Rgff9fqHvv

"Melania wants nothing to do with him. 9 days with Trump she can't wait to get back to her sanctuary in New York," one person speculated.

@raggapegs Melania wants nothing to do with him. 9 days with Trump she can't wait to get back to her sanctuary in New York.

However, others said that people were reading the interaction wrong.

@raggapegs She was lagging behind, Trump was signaling her to speed up. She did look annoyed by the gesture however.

Or said it was fake news.

Ut-oh Media, Melania is charming the planet with style, grace and kindness. How are you going to leak this into something terrible?
