Emerging from Air Force One, Donald tried to take Melania's hand, only for her to swoop it up to wipe away hair that wasn't even in her face.
It's the second time in as many days that Melania has publicly rebuffed Donald's attempts at intimacy, or physical stability, though I'm sure in private the number is much, much higher.
The Israeli prime minister and his wife rolled out the red carpet for President Trump and First Lady Melania, but one moment stood out-a flick of the wrist seen around the world. It's possible that Melania is more aware of the cultural expectations of the region than her husband is, and therefore she knew that women are supposed to walk behind men and aren't allowed to hold hands. Just before they begin their descent down the stairs, Donald reaches for Melania's hand. So far that hasn't happened, but the hand swat is a bit of schadenfreude they can enjoy. At Trump's inauguration, a gif of the first lady's facial expression after he turned towards her went viral. Speculations are rife that the US First couple are not on good terms with each other and every now and then they are compared to their predecessors Barack Obama and Michelle Obama. Israeli publication Haaretz tweeted the moment was "embarrassing".
"She tries to hold his hand at times in an affectionate way, which makes me think that was their normal way of walking". She gently nudged him to place his hand on his heart as the national anthem played during the White House Easter Egg Roll last month. The White House also confirmed that a new school for the first couple's son has been picked.
Bad news/good news (depending on how you feel about the same) is, there has been an addition to the list and it includes his wife and FLOTUS, Melania Trump.
