Melania Trump breaks her social media silence

Melania Trump is back in the spotlight.

First Lady Melania Trump has taken to social media to share photos of herself and the Japanese prime minister’s wife touring the Morikami Museum and Gardens in Florida, where she and President Trump were married.

It is the first time since the inauguration that Melania has used her official First Lady of the United States, or FLOTUS, account having shied away from the public eye since her husband took office.

Unlike former first lady Michelle Obama, who often used social media to engage with and get to know the public, Melania has stayed quiet on this front.

So it comes as no surprise that her pics caused somewhat of a frenzy overnight.

She posted two photos of herself walking through the stunning gardens with Akie Abe and one of the church where she and her husband said ‘I do’.

The photos quickly gained attention around the world and have already been shared thousands of times.

Melania is not expected to take on a large public role anytime soon, as she stays in New York to look after the couple’s young son Barron who is still attending school in the city.

Traditionally, the first lady heavily involved in charity work and showcases a softer side to life in the White House.

It is thought that Melania and Barron will move to Washington further down the track.
