Poland’s President Andrzej Duda attacked America’s ‘fake news’ reports of wife snubbing Trump handshake

Polish President Andrzej Duda ripped “fake news” reports that his wife snubbed President Trump for a handshake during Trump’s visit to Poland.

In a tweet, Duda confirmed that both he and his wife shook hands with the president and urged his followers to “fight fake news” together.

“Contrary to some surprising reports my wife did shake hands with Mrs. and Mr. Trump @POTUS after a great visit,” he wrote Thursday evening. “Let’s FIGHT FAKE NEWS.”

In video taken of the event, Trump initially shakes hands with Duda.

Trump then appears to put his hand out to shake Polish first lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda’s hand, but she walks past him to shake the hand of first lady Melania Trump.

Afterward, Kornhauser-Duda proceeded to shake President Trump’s hand. The interaction occurred as Trump visits several European countries ahead of the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, this week.

Video of the event that didn’t show Trump’s eventual handshake with the Polish first lady went viral on Twitter and was posted by several journalists.
