Melania Trump skips Davos summit, visits Holocaust museum

First Lady Melania Trump toured the Washington Thursday, calling it a "moving" experience and taking part in a social media campaign to spur online conversations about the Holocaust.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the people whose lives and families were broken by the horrors of the Holocaust".

Mrs. Trump had originally been scheduled to join her husband at an economic summit in Davos, Switzerland, this week. "My heart is with you, and we remember".

The tabloid Daily Mail reported Friday that Mrs. Trump has spent a number of nights at a D.C. hotel in the wake of reports of allegations by adult film star Stormy Daniels that she had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006, shortly after he married Melania. Despite the rebuttals, recent headlines have inevitably made for a hard period for the first lady.

After The Wall Street Journal broke the story on January 12, the first lady went with Trump to Mar-a-Lago in Florida for the holiday weekend but did not attend the two dinners he hosted - one with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and another with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

She has joined her husband on his other foreign trips.

Honestly, we think Melania is just trying to fill the time since she said she couldn't travel with POTUS due to "scheduling and logistical issues". Requests from CNN to the West Wing and East Wing press offices to inquire whether the couple celebrated in private were not returned. Her last posting was a message on January 20 to mark the one-year anniversary of the inauguration, with a photograph from the day that cryptically did not include her husband, but rather a uniformed military escort.

Mrs. Trump on Thursday said she was visiting the museum in advance of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Saturday to honour millions of people who were victims of the Nazis.
