First lady Melania Trump slaps at President Trump's hand on Tel Aviv tarmac in Israel


President Trump and wife, Melania, touched down in Israel on Monday morning, and their arrival included a strange tarmac moment between the U.S. commander in chief and first lady.

The president and first lady were greeted in Tel Aviv by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and wife, Sara, who walked side by side as they left the tarmac. As President Trump and Melania moved along, the president reached for his wife's hand.

"It appears First Lady Melania Trump slaps away Pres. Trump's hand as he reaches to hold it while on tarmac in Israel," Niraj Warikoo of the Detroit Free Press notes via Twitter.

This is not the first noteworthy body language moment observed between the president and first lady, but rather the latest in a series of nudges, frowns and disturbed facial expressions exhibited by the Slovenian former model.

The pair's arrival in Tel Aviv marks the second leg of their foreign journey to five nations. During their first stop in Saudi Arabia, Melania Trump made headlines when she and first daughter Ivanka Trump forewent the traditionally conservative headscarf.
