Donald and Melania Trump welcomed the Turnbulls to the White House on Friday. Traditionally, the first American couple wasn’t photographed holding hands at any point during Friday’s visit.
Melania rump opted the $3,595 gold-trimmed, double-breasted coat from Dolce & Gabbana, the first lady looked smiling and relaxing. She paired the dress with equally sparkly, golden snakeskin five-inch stilettos.
For the first couple of America, the joint public appearance on Friday was the first one after several weeks of appearing distant from the president following cheating allegations. Donald’s sexual encounter with porn star Stormy Daniels after Trump’s son Barron was born, has humiliated Melania really hard.
The scandal was so heavy for both wife and husband that last month, the pair arrived separately to his State Of The Union address, breaking with tradition.
Australian PM’s visit to the White House is a good sign
This Friday, though, Melania and Donald put on a united front. President Trump and prime minister Turnbull shook hands before going inside for meetings, a working lunch and a joint news conference.
Relations between the president and the Australian head of government got off to a tumultuous start shortly after Mr Trump took office.
They sparred over a contentious telephone call over a plan for the U.S. to accept refugees that had been agreed to by former President Barack Obama.
Joe Hockey, Australia’s ambassador to the US, says the two leaders ‘understand each other’ now and enjoy each other’s company.
According to Hockey, the former businessmen share a ‘common language’ while Melania and Lucy Turnbull had a wonderful conversation, too.
