At an occasion in Warsaw on 6 July 2017, Gloss First Girl Agata Kornhauser-Duda rejected to drink hands with Donald Trump.

On 6 July 2017, video clip arised of Donald and also Melania Trump's conference with Gloss Head of state Andrzej Duda as well as First Woman Agata Kornhauser-Duda, in Warsaw.

Numerous records concentrated on a brief clip in which the 4 traded introductions, with Kornhauser-Duda trembling Melania Trump's hand, while the united state head of state expanded his very own.

Newsweek released a tale with the heading: "View Donald Trump Handshake Declined by Gloss First Woman in Hilariously Awkward Exchange"; Vanity Fair's post was entitled "The First Girl of Poland Efficiently Prevented Trembling Donald Trump's Hand"; and also the Financial Express internet site's tale announced: "Donald Trump Snubbed, Currently Poland First Girl Declines Handshake, Selects Melania Rather", including:

Nonetheless, prolonging the clip by simply a number of secs offers an exact photo of the complete experience, with Kornhauser-Duda drinking hands with Donald Trump right away after welcoming the united state First Girl.

So Kornhauser-Duda did tremble Donald Trump's hand. She simply drank Melania Trump's hand initially. Additionally, she did not show up to also see Donald Trump's prolonged hand. As both head of states drink hands, Kornhauser-Duda starts strolling over to Melania Trump, showing up to keep eye call with her in any way times, suggesting she fairly potentially really did not capture the Head of state's tried handshake in her field of vision.

Ultimately, there is a particular order or choreography to the introductions, which Kornhauser-Duda shows up to have actually been adhering to. Initially, both presidents shake hands, while both initial girls do the exact same, then the First Girl of Poland drinks hands with the Head of state of the USA, while the First Girl of the USA drinks hands with the Head of state of Poland.

So also if Agata Kornhauser-Duda did see Donald Trump's outstretched hand at the last minute, the truth that both did not tremble hands right then does not always suggest she was "snubbing" or "declining" or perhaps "efficiently preventing" Trump. Rather, she might just have actually been adhering to method.

Both Newsweek as well as Vanity Fair upgraded their short articles after magazine to show the truth that Donald Trump as well as Agata Kornhauser-Duda did really drink hands.

This occurrence mirrors comparable coverage from June 2017, when Trump organized India's head of state, Narendra Modi, at the White Residence. Newsweek reported as Modi had actually "escaped" and also "nicely avoided" a handshake from Trump by embracing him. Actually, Modi launched a handshake with Trump, prior to comfortably embracing him-- a welcoming for which the Head Of State of India has actually ended up being popular, and also which he has actually presented on numerous globe leaders recently.
