The First Lady has pulled her hand away from President Trump's attempts to hold it numerous times during his presidency.

First Lady Melania Trump was caught on video pulling away as President Donald Trump tried to take her hand while the pair departed Air Force One on Sunday, leading to online mockery and speculation about her motive.

  • RawStory reported that the Trumps were returning from a weekend spent at the president’s New Jersey golf club.
  • “As the first family was descending the stairs of Air Force One, Mrs. Trump held her handbag in her left hand while holding the railing of the stairs with her right,” the publication wrote. “The president reached for her left hand with his right, only for her to try and avoid it and then ultimately pull it away.”
  • The first lady’s reaction was but “one of many times that the first lady has jerked her hand away after her husband tried to hold it,” though this “was much more frequent in the early days of the couple’s time in the White House.”
  • Internet users “responded to the video with their own assumptions about the reason for the move motivated by everything from COVID-19 to politics.”
