Donald Trump is not a classic American gentleman, that is for sure, as he was spotted arriving for dinner in France and simply left his wife Melania on her own.
He and first lady Melania Trump arrived at a Saturday evening dinner in Biarritz in a two-car motorcade, with teams of security guards in tow, after every other leader and their partners had arrived to the first official event of this year’s G7 summit.
They were greeted on the spot by the French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte, who sought to make them comfortable them affectionate back pats and reciprocate hand holding.
But if you note in the video, Trump hops out of the car and greets President Macron, but leaves Melania alone to walk around the car without him.
A gentleman would wait for his wife to be at his side, then walk towards Macron.
Of course this isn’t the first time Trump has put himself first.
In March 2018, he bolted ahead of Melania in the wind and rain:

And who can forget the time Trump boarded Air Force One with an umbrella, and left a wet Melania and son Barron behind?

Twitter obviously thinks Trump is a pig:
@realDonaldTrump just ONCE, it would be nice if u put aside ur ape like behavior and be a gentleman. U again leapt out of the car to greet Macron, leaving Melania to fend for herself. Of course I wouldn't give her the time of day, but u are her husband, ACT LIKE IT!

Why can he not spend just a few seconds to wait for Melania so they can greet the French President and First lady together? He's such an embarrassment.
