Melania Affectionately Rests Hand on Trump's Arm at Mar-a-Lago Party

Inside Edition Staff
But the moment of serenity didn't last.

There was a rare public display of affection between the Trumps Saturday as Melania was seen resting her hand on her husband's arm.

A photo taken at a Studio 54-themed party at Mar-a-Lago also shows the president putting his hand on Melania's knee.

Over recent weeks, amid reports of Trump's past infidelities, there has been speculation that Melania is giving him the cold shoulder, including suggestions that she swatted away his hand as they left the White House.

The party at Mar-a-Lago Saturday came hours after the couple visited survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Fla., at Broward Health North Hospital.

Over the rest of the weekend, the president launched what The New York Times called "a two-day Twitter tirade that was unusually angry and defiant even by Mr. Trump's standards."

The president usually spends his Mar-a-Lago weekends playing golf, but The New York Times and Washington Post say Trump’s top aides didn't like how it would look if he was photographed on the golf course so soon after the high school shooting. Instead Trump found himself in his club spending hours watching cable news and getting more agitated. 

In tweets over the weekend, he chastised the FBI and the Mueller investigation over the indictments of 13 Russians who they say meddled with the 2016 presidential elections.

He also appeared to blame the FBI's investigation for Wednesday’s shooting, saying, “They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.”

The barrage continued Sunday night when Trump capped off his weekend tweet storm with a swipe at Oprah following her "60 Minutes" report. She spoke to Michigan voters about the president.  

He called the talk show icon “very insecure” and said he hopes she runs for office against him “so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!"

Oprah has not commented on the president's tweets.
