Video has emerged of the moment US President Donald Trump appears to have his hand slapped away by First Lady Melania during a visit to Israel.

In the footage, the pair can be seen exiting Air Force One and are accompanied onto the tarmac at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara.

However, as he is invited to greet a number of waiting dignitaries and ministers, Mr Trump reaches out behind him in what appears to be an attempt to get her to hold his hand - but she refuses, swatting it away.
