Sometimes, a person’s innermost thoughts are written all over their face.
Which is why people are speculating about the strength of the relationship between two of the women closest to Donald Trump: his wife, Melania, and eldest daughter, Ivanka.
And it’s all because of a rather unusual expression Melania was caught making after greeting her step-daughter at the Republican National Convention.
Take a look.
This was so weird. #RNC2020 https://t.co/YHReTl0bfT — Dana Goldberg (@Dana Goldberg)
The moment occurred as Ivanka strode back from introducing her father for his acceptance speech as the official 2020 Republican presidential nominee.
Melania greeted the first daughter with a wide smile – at first.
But as soon as Ivanka was past her, cameras captured the smile quickly turning to a stony-faced grimace.
People were quick to pick up on the moment.
Some were sardonic.
I see that Melania and Ivanka are getting along juuuuust fine. https://t.co/ktnmRBBG7Q — TrumpsTaxes (@TrumpsTaxes)
Makes you wonder what Ivanka whispered to Melania as she passed by.

There were jokes about Melania doing a That’s So Raven.
Melania just had a vision of the future https://t.co/badVeojLrQ — Daniel Newmaη (@Daniel Newmaη)
Everyone reached the same assumption though.
Melania doesn’t seem to like Ivanka https://t.co/PyiJ3OPjTZ — Scott Dworkin (@Scott Dworkin)
Then again, it could all have just been a facial tic that meant nothing, althugh there have been previous rumours of tension between the two.
Unless Melania speaks up, we'll probably sadly never know the truth.
