Warsaw: In yet another awkward moment, US President Donald Trump thought the hand extended by Poland's first lady was for him - and not for his wife, Melania.

The US and Poland's presidential couples were shaking hands Thursday before Trump's speech in front of a crowd in Warsaw, the Polish capital.
