Donald Tusk: “Despite Seasonal Turbulences our Transatlantic Friendship Must Last”
A photo showing Polish politician Donald Tusk, the former European Council president, pointing two fingers stretched out in the shape of a gun to the back of US President Donald Trump has sparked heated debate among Internet pioneers.
Tusk posted the picture, which appears to have been taken at the recent NATO summit in London, on his Twitter page and enclose it with words: “Despite seasonal fluctuations, our transatlantic friendship must continue.”

Some saw Tusk’s gesture as a kind of retaliation and the underlying threat to Trump, who had previously disagreed with Tusk on many things and criticized many of his policies, while others denounced the Tusk as a cheap and inappropriate joke.
There are those who put the Tusk gesture in a box that appears to be a mockery of what Trump’s Western leaders and his blunt, sometimes rude, and often abusive policies are offensive to others.
