Saudi King breaks longstanding Islamic sharia tradition for Melania Trump

As Melania Trump set foot on Saudi soil, the king shook her hand, a gesture that shattered Muslim traditions in which men do not shake the hands of women. The 81-year-old king appeared at the airport in Riyadh to welcome the Trumps, and cast custom to the winds as he did so.

Inquisitr  The king not only extended his hand to President Trump but also to the first lady. This is a nation where shaking a woman’s hand is virtually unheard of. Ivanka Trump and her husband also accompanied her father and Melania on this trip, and the king’s hand was extended to Ivanka as well as Melania.
