Did Melania Trump go to Mar-a-Lago this weekend? Everyone has been watching the First Lady of the United States' every move after In Touch published the 5,000-word transcript of the interview with Stormy Daniels, the porn star who allegedly had an affair with Melania's husband Donald Trump in 2006 — before he became the president of the United States and just months after Melania gave birth to their son Barron Trump.
Even though multiple reports have pointed to alleged strain in Donald and Melania's marriage in the weeks following the interview, it looks like the First Family is putting on a united front. Air Force One touched down at Palm Beach International Airport at around 6:55 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 2, according to local newspaper The Palm Beach Post. According to video footage recorded by a Palm Beach Post political reporter, the president arrived with Melania and their 11-year-old son.

In the clip posted to Twitter, Melania wore what appeared to be a black jumpsuit with a red coat as she gracefully walked off the off the plane. But while POTUS stopped to smile and wave to the cameras, Melania coldly walked past him and she seemed to be in a hurry to get into the limo that was waiting for them on the tarmac.
Their Mar-a-Lago visit comes just days after Donald's first State of the Union address — after which Melania made headlines again because she broke with tradition and instead of arriving to the event with her husband like previous first ladies have done in the past, she arrived solo. But FLOTUS' communications director Stephanie Grisham delivered what seemed to be a fairly understandable excuse.
"[Melania is] honoring her guests for the true heroes they are," Stephanie told CNN and explained she wanted to spend more time with her guests for the event, which included a Hurricane Harvey relief organizer and a California firefighter. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders echoed her statement and said FLOTUS and POTUS arrived separately, "for no reason other than she can greet the guests and he can go straight in."
