Melania Trump visibly resisted holding Donald Trump’s hand as they landed in Washington D.C. on Sunday, August 18.
The couple and their son Barron Trump were spotted stepping down from Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews in Washington after flying in from Bedminster, New Jersey.
As the president and the first lady made their way down the stairs, Trump attempted to hold Melania’s hand twice, but the First lady resisted holding his hand as she tightly clutched onto her $13K camel-colored Hermès Birkin bag.
