Kanye West may love Donald Trump, but the woman he promised to love, honor, and cherish until death doesn’t look like she likes him very much.
During an event with French president Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte, who are in town for an official state visit, Trump tried to hold his wife’s hand, and Melania Trump not only repeatedly refused the affectionate gesture, but also looked like she barely wanted to be standing near her husband at all.
The awkward scene was, of course, caught on camera, and shared on social media.
“She REALLY didn’t want to hold his hand,” one Twitter user wrote, sharing a clip of Donald Trump desperately grasping for Melania Trump’s hand.
This isn’t the first time Melania Trump rebuked her husband in public. The couple has had several clumsy moments. During a visit to Israel in May 2017, the first lady appeared to slap her husband’s hand away as they walked from the plane toward the waiting crowd.
While Melania Trump may not have wanted to touch her husband, France’s president had no problem cozying up to the president. During Macron’s three-day visit, the two presidents were very affectionate toward each other. The two got on so well CNN described their relationship as a “touchy-feely presidential bromance.”
It remains to be seen if the cordial relationship between Trump and Macron will help their two countries come to a compromise on a slew of very important issues from climate change to the Iran nuclear deal, but we hope so.
