Donald Trump told spectators “Melania really wanted to be with us today” while Melania was very much present during an appearance in Florida.
You never quite know how things are going to go down there when the President and First Lady of the US step out together in public.
Trump was filmed giving his wife a handshake before shoving her off stage during an event at a military facility near Washington.
Melanie was seen appearing to slap the President’s hand away , caught on camera during Donald’s tour of the Middle East in May.
But now it seems that relations between them have taken another turn , and the Donald isn’t even aware when his own wife is present.
Trump was speaking in Florida, in the aftermath of the Hurricane Irma when he made the gaffe.
Donald is heard speaking to media and rescue workers when he says: “I just want to thank everybody, the first responders, on behalf of myself and our VP.
“Melanie really wanted to be with us. It’s really touched her heart.”
It was a touching message from the President of US to those working to support people affected in the deadly storm.
But there was just one little problem – Melanie was definitely “with us” and in fact stood next to her husband the whole time.
The clip was posted to Twitter by Holly O’Reilly, who set up the March for protest against Donald Trump.
It has been retweeted more than 7,000 times until now.
