Melania Trump Body Language: She Looks 'Uncomfortable' in Recent Photos vs. 2016 Campaign Picture, Expert Says
United States President Donald Trump has an apparent habit of starting a tweetstorm in the middle of the night or too early in the morning. First Lady Melania Trump, on the other hand, has a completely different approach to the use of social media. She may not fancy sharing many details online, but her photos since 2016 have been favorite subjects of body language experts.
Most recently Insider reported on body language expert Patti Wood’s observations on five different photos of America’s first couple. But probably the most interesting part of it was the suggestion that Mrs. Trump reportedly ended up becoming “uncomfortable” in recent images compared to a photo from 2016.
The only photo observed in the report was taken in 2016, while Mr. Trump was campaigning to become America’s 45th President. Mrs. Trump was there to support her in an appearance on the “Today” show.
The said photo shows the now-President donning a big smile while Mrs. Trump, who is wearing an all-white turtleneck dress, shares that laughter with him. “It's a very real laugh that goes all the way up through his body and lifts up his shoulders, lifts up his body, lifts up his cheeks, and he's squinting,” Wood explained. The body language expert also noted that Mrs. Trump was “voluntarily” touching her husband’s arm in the photo which is purportedly a big contrast to what can be seen when they attempt to hold hands in public in 2019.
Fast forward to a photo taken this month by Alex Wong as the Trumps hosted a Mother’s Day celebration for military moms, Wood shared some interesting observations. In this image, the Trumps are seen about to share a kiss though there is a distance between them as the President holds his wife by her arms.
"It's a grip. You can see the indents on her arm," Wood suggested. "There's a distinct difference between that grip — the tension, the placement, the indent on somebody's arm — and a hold, embrace, to enjoy somebody being close to you.” Furthermore, Wood said Mrs. Trump is visibly “uncomfortable” in this situation.
