Melania Trump Is Media Shy

She refuses to hold the hands of her husband and even swats away his hand when offered (even in public).
Melania Trump Controversies
Melania Trump has been in controversies for a lot of reasons. It all started when she was alleged of plagiarizing the former first lady, Michelle Obama’s speech. Michelle Obama delivered an inspiring speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2008. People couldn’t help notice the similarities in Melania’s Republic National Convention speech that she delivered in 2016.
Melania has also been in controversies due to her expensive taste and dressing. Her branded jackets and shirts that are ridiculously pricey have garnered disapproval from the critics a lot of times. After all, half the population does not even earn near to what she spends on clothing!
One of the biggest controversies that Melania Trump faces is that she has a body double! There have been too many claims suggesting that Melania Trump uses a body double. The fact that she has a secret service bodyguard that looks exactly like her does not help the situation either. Whatever be the truth, the fact that Melania Trump is unlike any other former first ladies remains strong.
