Melania Trump attends husband’s first State of the union amid claims he had affair with porn Star

Melania Trump was on hand at the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday in a show of support for her husband during his first State of the Union address.

Breaking tradition, Mrs. Trump arrived separately from the president, opting to ride with her guests invited to the first lady’s box, according to CNN.

According to PEOPLE, The appearance comes after the first lady abruptly canceled a plan trip to Davos, Switzerland. President Trump last week amid allegations that he had an affair with porny star Stormy Daniel. The change of plans stirred further speculation about a possible rift between the first couple, especially after it was reported that the first lady traveled to West Palm Beach, Florida  on Friday instead of Davos.image-22.jpg

The New York Times reported that the first lady’s four-hour roundtrip flight to Mar-a-Lago cost taxpayers a pretty penny — approximately $64,600. Every time the first lady flies from Joint Base Andrews to Palm Beach International Airport on a C-32A plane it costs taxpayers an estimated $16,168 per hour, according to the Department of Defense, as reported by the Times.

The newspaper also said the first lady was “furious” over reports that her husband’s lawyer Michael Cohen arranged $130,000 to Daniels shortly before the 2016 presidential election to bar her from talking about her alleged sexual encounter with Trump.

The White House and Cohen have denied the President had an affair with Daniels but declined to answer questions from the Wall Street Journal about an agreement with her, according to the newspaper.
