Viral photo shows Trump putting his hands on a glowing orb

When a photo of Donald Trump putting his hands on a mysterious glowing orb went viral on Sunday, rumors immediately began to swirl.

The image shows the president standing alongside Saudi Arabia's King Salman and Egypt's President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi in Saudi Arabia.

According to the Washington Post, the orb is simply an installation at the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology in Riyadh, Saudi.

It seem's that Trump's touching of the orb at the same time as other world leaders was a gesture of solidarity around peace for the facility, which just recently opened.

That didn't stop Twitter users from coming up with wild theories of their own:
