An awkward moment on man-love between US President Donald Trump and his deputy Mike Pence has made headlines across the world.

The incident occurred during the memorial service for the late Reverend Billy Graham on Wednesday (local time).

Perhaps feeling a touch emotional, Mr Trump, in a rare exhibition of public affection, reached over his wife to gently touch Mr Pence's thigh.

But Mr Pence didn't seem to appreciate Mr Trump's kind gesture, gazing ahead thin-lipped.

The photo has been widely mocked on social media.

It's not the first time Mr Trump has been accused of non-consensual touching.

He's has been accused by multiple women of groping, many of whom came forward after the infamous "grab them by the p***y" tape emerged during the presidential election campaign.
