Donald Trump has suffered another embarrassing handshake moment after being ‘snubbed’ by the wife of Poland’s president.

The US president, who was in Warsaw with first lady Melania, was attending a ceremony with Andrzej Duda and his wife, Agata Kornhauser-Duda. As the group were preparing to leave the stage, Trump shared a handshake with Poland’s president before extending a hand to Kornhauser-Duda. She appears to ignore the gesture, moving instead to embrace Melania and only after turning to shake Trump’s hand.

It is unclear whether the rebuff was intentional, either way video of the exchange immediately went viral.
