Another show of defiance may come from the way Melania Trump has allowed the president to be more publicly affectionate, including on Monday when the two walked on the South Lawn of the White House to Marine One.
Melania Trump wears a pink suit with nude Christian Louboutin pumps. In one of the few references to herself, Trump said she had focused her efforts as first lady on helping children.
"It takes courage not only to see wrong, but strive to right it", she said in brief remarks before she passed out the awards.
The smiling shot was posted the same week a source close to the first lady told PEOPLE that the former model is "furious" over the nonstop controversies engulfing the White House and her husband's presidency.
In one snapshot, Melania has her hands clasped together and a smile on her face while she chats with the sisters.
Boris Johnson compares Russia World Cup to Hitler's 1936 Olympics
Johnson told a committee of MPs he agreed with the assertion from one member, "the comparison with 1936 is certainly right". All national teams want to play and football fans want to be here.
Melania Trump spoke about courage on Friday - what it is and why the world needs it.
She made the speech during an event on cyber safety held at the White House, attended by technology leaders from the likes of Facebook and Google. Wearing high-heeled boots, Melania Trump stumbled.
She has even implied she knows it appears hypocritical for her to try and tackle cyberbullying, given her husband's nickname as the world's biggest internet troll.
But after Trump caught her, she put her arm around him and they enjoyed a brief embrace as they continued on to the helicopter. However, author Michael Wolff recently claimed the pair also have separate bedrooms at the White House.
The first lady posts significantly less frequently than her husband on social media, and her tweets lack the bombast of the president. McDougal said she ended the relationship in 2007 out of guilt. That's when she could fill her free time playing tennis, doing Pilates, shopping, reading magazines and caring for her son Barron.
'She was able to do whatever she wanted and have her family with her much of the time, ' claims the source, adding that Melania regularly visited her husband's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. "And he's 24/7 on TV and electronics and thinking and scheming".
