about the video

As U.S. President Donald Trump visited Israel, some eagle-eyed social media users claimed footage showed his wife flicking his hand away as he reached for hers after landing in Israel. The footage was filmed shortly after the Trump spoke on the tarmac in Tel Aviv of “the unbreakable bond” between the United States and Israel and mentioned a “rare opportunity” to bring security and stability to the region. He later made a historic visit to Jerusalem’s Western Wall, standing and speaking before the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray, before inserting a note between the monumental stones. The Trumps are in Israel on the second leg of their first overseas trip since taking office. Trump will meet separately with Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in a stopover lasting approximately 28 hours.
