Watch: Donald Trump Tries and Fails to Hold Melania's Hand, Gets a Handful of Her Coat Sleeve Instead  

The awkward public displays of affection between President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump continue.

On Monday, the Trumps were spotted leaving the White House for Ohio on Marine One and Trump can be seen reaching for his wife's right hand-and failing.

In news footage of the bumbling moment, Trump tries to hold Melania's hand but gets a handful of her coat sleeve instead. That's because the first lady, as she has become famed for doing, draped her coat over her shoulders.

Melania's stylish yellow coat Monday is from Ralph Lauren's fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection. The first lady paired the long trench with a matching yellow turtleneck jumper and a brown leather skirt.

The Trumps' hand-holding misfire Monday is the latest in a great tradition of viral moments.

Arriving in Israel in May 2017, Melanie appeared to swat away Trump's hand as he reached out to hold hers. The clip prompted all manner of speculation about the state of the first marriage.


A day later, Melania appeared to avoid holding hands with Trump while they disembarked Air Force One in Rome.

In the first weeks of 2018, speculation about the state of the Trumps' marriage has only intensified amid allegations that Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen paid out $130,000 on his behalf to a porn star with whom Trump reportedly had an affair. The settlement was intended to keep Stormy Daniels from speaking about the sexual encounters between them.

Trump is claimed to have first slept with actor Daniels in July 2006, just four months after Melania gave birth to their son Barron. Trump's lawyer has denied that an affair took place.

In January, In Touch magazine ran an interview with Daniels conducted in 2011 in which she spoke about the affair and called sex with Trump "textbook generic."

Daniels signed the agreement to keep quiet about Trump in October 2016, only a month before he won the presidential election.
