Melania appears to yet again reject Trump’s attempt to hold hands

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, arrived in Rome as part of his first international trip as president of the United States, and once again, it looked like the first lady was rejecting his physical advances.

Prior to their visit to the Vatican, the Trumps were spotted exiting Air Force One, and as President Trump reached for Melania’s hand, she seemed to pull a subtle move to avoid it by using her left hand, the one that was closest to him, in order to fix her hair.

The move came just one day after a similar encounter in Israel, when she could be seen apparently swatting Trump’s hand away from her own as they walked down the tarmac.

True to form, after the rebuffing from the first lady, former Obama White House photographer Pete Souza took to Instagram for yet another subtle dig at the president, posting an image of Barack and Michelle Obama holding hands with each other in Selma, Alabama, with the simple caption: “holding hands.”

Holding hands.

While Melania has been living in New York while their son, Barron, finishes school, she announced that she would be joining the international trip just before it began.

“I am very excited for the upcoming trip,” she said in a statement. “This will not just be an opportunity to support my husband as he works on important matters of national security and foreign relations, it will also be my honor to visit and speak with women and children from different countries, with different perspectives.”
