Everyone knows President Donald Trump strives to be a strong leader—but literally shoving another world leader to get to the front of a group is something new.
It appears that Trump, while meeting with other NATO leaders during his first foreign trip on Thursday, shoved someone out of the way so he could be front and center.
After pushing past the leader—identified as Dusko Markovic, prime minister of Montenegro—he adjusts his suit jacket and poses.
Take a look at it here and decide for yourself.

Naturally, the internet had a field day with Trump’s latest attempt to be seen and heard.
He wouldn't do that to Gianforte, I can tell you that.— patrick (@knowitall143) May 25, 2017
The face he makes after shoving himself to the front of the line says it all.— Artist Gail (@ArtistGailS) May 25, 2017
Trump has repeatedly accused members of NATO of owing the United States money for defense.
This is the second embarrassing mishap for Trump on Thursday; earlier in the day, newly-elected French President Emmanuel Macron bested Trump at his own handshake power grab.
