Posts Claim That Poland’s First Lady, Agata Kornhauser-Duda, “Rejected Trump’s Handshake”

Fact Test - False

The claim(s):

On July 6, 2017, a page on Facebook uploaded a video claiming that the First Lady of Poland, Agata Kornhauser-Duda, rejected U.S. President Donald Trump’s handshake.

Variations of this claim can be viewed here and here on Twitter.

The truth:

This claim is false.

While the First Lady of Poland did appear, at first, to pass President Trump by to shake the hand of U.S. First Lady, Melania Trump, she does eventually return to him and shake his hand in the same exchange. This can be seen here, here, and here.
