Vice President Mike Pence’s office strongly rejected the online suggestion Prince Charles had “snubbed” him Thursday at the World Holocaust Forum in Jerusalem.
A short video spread on Twitter of Prince Charles shaking hands with world leaders such as Israel Prime Minister Victrix Netanyahu, but skipped over Pence who was standing nearby.
