Melania Trump steps out with Donald and Barron after MLK tweet backlash

Melania Trump, 47, was seen stepping out of her private jet with the US President Donald Trump, 71.

The couple were joined by their 11-year-old son Barron Trump, returning home after a weekend at their Palm Springs mansion.

Melania, Donald and Barron touched down on the South Lawn of the White House after spending the past few days at Mar-a-Lago.

Melania wore a warm-looking grey tan and black coat as she smiled at photographers.

Melania was criticised yesterday for tweeting about Martin Luther King on the civil rights leader’s national memorial day.

January 15 the anniversary of the activists birthday, and is a day of celebration for many. 

Melania tweeted: “Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. & his service to this great country.  I am honored to be First Lady of a nation that continually strives for equality & justice for all. #MLKDay”

However, numerous Twitter users were unhappy with the First Lady’s message.

One said: “You might want to talk to your husband about equality and justice for all.”

Another wrote: “Good luck with ‘striving’ – your husband is doing an excellent job of setting back the fight for equality by decades.” 

However, others supported Melania’s tweets. One said: “Thank you @FLOTUS & @POTUS for your #AmericaFirst #MAGA agenda! You are loved and appreciated by the millions of legal American citizens. Thank you for trying to unite our country! Keep pressing forward!”

Donald Trump was also in hot water recently when he was forced to deny paying a porn star £94,000 to “keep hidden encounter quiet”.

Mr Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, denied the claims that the Republican firebrand had a sexual encounter with Stephanie Clifford – the actress is also known as “Stormy Daniels”.

It was revealed recently that one of former-First Lady Michelle Obama’s designers is prepared to dress Melania.

Thom Browne, a designer from New York who has worked with Ralph Lauren, said: “Look, I respect her as the first lady, and it’s something that I would respect.” 

He made the statement at a Q&A in New York on Wednesday. 

The designer dressed Michelle Obama for the 2013 inauguration.
