Trump again ventured outside of the White House on Tuesday, this time taking a short trip across town to the Saint John Paul II Shrine at the Catholic University of America, a place of prayer for Catholics but also welcomes people of all faiths. Although this was nothing more than another photo op for the president and a chance to smile and act like everything is ok, his other half was not playing up to the cameras.
In an awkward moment, the president appears to ask Melania to smile but she can only muster a tiny grin before recoiling in a grimace, probably being reminded of what her husband had done only 24 hours before.
Footage of this small moment soon went viral with people unsure whether to read too much into the first lady's 'smile'.
