Donald Tusk’s hand gesture and photo has raised a few eyebrows.

Former Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk has appeared to mock the US President after posting a bizarre photo online.

Tusk, the former EU council chief, posted an image that showed him pulling a “gun” hand gesture with two fingers pointing at US President Donald Trump’s back.

Tusk’s image was posted with the caption: “Despite seasonal turbulences our transatlantic friendship must last #Trump #NATO.” 

It’s likely the former council chief was just guiding the politicians, but people were quick to point out his hand gesture looked like a “gun”.

The polarising post comes after Justin Trudeau and Emmanuel Macron were caught apparently also mocking Trump, which Trudeau later denied.

Tusk recently ended his term as the president of the the European Council. He was Prime Minister of Poland from 2007 to 2014.

Tusk and Trump previously had a tense relationship, with differing views on Brexit and the EU, The Sun reported. 

According to The Sun, the picture Tusk posted online was taken at last year’s G7 meeting in Canada.

The bizarre photo left many people on Twitter confused, with some calling it “stupid” and “terrible”.

Some people expressed concerned, saying it had a menacing tone, but others found some humour in it.

One person replied to Tusk’s post, saying: “This photo sums up your character and political tactics perfectly.”

Another person said: “What the hell is he doing behind the president’s back.”
