A video has shown Melania Trump appearing to refuse to hold husband Donald Trump’s hand as they stepped off Air Force One.
Footage, which has been widely shared online, shows the First Lady, 50, navigating the steps from the presidential aircraft in high heels while trying to hold her dress down in windy conditions.
However, many on social suggested she was giving her 74-year-old husband the cold shoulder as she moved her arm away when he tried to grab hold of it.
The clip was widely discussed on social media with Twitter users having mixed opinions on what happened during the incident.

One Twitter user said: “Nope. She doesn’t want him touching her.”
Another tweeted: “Or she’s trying to keep her dress down from wind. But you keep doing you.”
A third wrote: “This Florida divorce lawyer will handle your divorce for free @FLOTUS.”
The couple, who were travelling with their 14-year-old son, Barron, had arrived at Joint Base Andrews in Washington DC after flying in from New Jersey.
