The pair were at an event as part of the President’s campaign for re-election in November when Mr Trump said they should ’say hello’ to the crowd, as Melania shakes her head subtly. The senior advisor to politician Julian Castro, who is also standing for presidency, tweeted the embarrassing video. Sawyer Hackett tweeted: “Trump suggests to Melania that they go ‘say hello’ to the crowd.
“She subtly shakes her head no.”
The Slovenian-born former modern has been helping her husband, Donald Trump, on the campaign trail.
The US First Lady gave a speech from the White House yesterday where she made a plea for racial unity.
She also urged protesters to “stop the violence and looting”.
Another time was when the pair travelled to Ohio and Trump tried to hold Melania’s hand but gave up and just placed his hand on her back.
A third time was when the pair were posing with Emmanuel Macron and Trump tried to hold Melania’s hand, but was initially rejected.
Melania is often criticised for her frosty demeanour.
In her first year of Trump’s presidency, she gave eight speeches, compared to Michelle Obama’s 74.
