A video footage shows the awkward moment when Poland’s first lady left the White House leader with an extended hand, as she preferred to shake hands with his wife at the Warsaw Summit.

Although the American president had extended his hand, Polish President Andrzej Duda’s wife, Agata Kornhauser-Duda, accidentally ignored his handshake and walked past to salute Donald Trump’s partner, Melania. Trump appeared to be stunned by the snub, and let out a slight smirk as the ladies talked.

The incident is reminiscent of a similar situation earlier this year, when Trump refused to shake hands with the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, during her visit at the White House.

Donald Trump was specially invited to the east-European summit called “Initiative of the Three Seas” (Baltic – Adriatic – Black), which has been held in Warsaw just a day before the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, which officially begins on Friday.
