Poland's President Andrzej Duda ripped "fake news" reports that his wife snubbed President Trump for a handshake during Trump's visit to Poland on Thursday.

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."

Afterward, the Polish first lady proceeded to shake President Trump's hand. The interaction occurred as Trump visits several European countries ahead of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany this week.
