    A number of netizens appeared skeptical of the "dog signal" interpretation of Trump’s gesture, suggesting different explanations for the president’s actions.

    The antics of US President Donald Trump have once again been thrust into the limelight on social media after a video featuring him making a peculiar gesture, allegedly in order to summon his wife Melania, went viral.

    The video, tweeted by comedy writer James Felton, appears to be a fragment of the footage of Trump’s 7 August visit to Dayton, Ohio in the wake of a deadly shooting that took place there three days earlier. In the video, Trump exits the presidential car and taps his leg three times with his hand, with First Lady Melania Trump walking into the frame moments later.

    "Donald Trump: ’Nobody respects women more than me,’” Felton wrote in the caption. “Also Donald Trump: ‘Here girl, come here girl” [pats leg] “come here wife, there’s a good girl.’”

    In response, a number of social media users went on to bash the presidential couple online.

    Some, however, appeared to doubt this interpretation of the president’s actions, suggesting that the president and his wife were merely communicating with each other via some sort of personal sign language.
