Donald Trump recently visited the U.K. for a NATO summit with other world leaders from around the world. While there, Polish Member of Parliament Donald Tusk apparently snapped a quick picture while Trump’s back was turned that shows him making what appears to be a gun gesture.

Tusk tweeted out the image with a fairly innocuous message, but conservative Americans have taken extreme offense to the picture.

Many conservatives interpreted the picture as a veiled threat against Trump or America.

Many Polish people also spoke out against Tusk’s gesture, thinking it was needlessly evocative of violence.

There were some online who felt the gesture was being blown out of proportion.

This incident is the latest in a long line of unfortunate moments for Trump at the NATO summit.

Continuing his pattern of distancing himself from U.S. allies, a clip of Trump interacting with the French President quickly went viral for his flippant attitude.

Later, several world leaders were caught on a hot mic making fun of President Trump while at a party.

Though Tusk’s gesture may not have been appropriate to make, it fits into a pattern of behavior among foreign world leaders who don’t feel Donald Trump has earned the respect typical given to prior United States’ Presidents.
