The first couple has faced an even closer “scan” after the announcement about the alleged relationship with Stormy Daniels hit the news.
People have been very curious to find out whether or not the scandal had any affect on their relationship, particularly after Melania decided not to accompany the President on his trip to the World Economic Forum.
Rumors got even worse after the revelation that Trump and Melania might spend Valentine’s Day apart.
The first couple spent the day separated since the First Lady had plans to visit a children’s hospital in Maryland, the National Institute of Health’s Children’s Inn.
The Office of the First Lady released a statement on Tuesday saying : “Mrs. Trump will spend an afternoon decorating cookies and making valentines and exchanging them with children currently patients at NIH and a few of their family members.”
A couple of weeks ago, Melania visited another children’s hospital where she brought valentines and coloring books.Reportedly on Feb. 5, was at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center where she was informed about the affect that opioids have on children.

And as his public schedule, shows President Trump didn’t have any Valentine’s Day-related activities. His day included getting his intelligence briefing, joining a tax reform working group, and signing a couple of bills.
However, the evening plans of the first couple were less clear. Unverified sources have said that “Trump plans to spend Valentines Day in his WH residence enjoying a private dinner and a movie. No word yet on Melania’s plans.”
According to Bustile : “It’s also unclear how Donald and Melania celebrated Valentine’s Day last year. Back then, the first lady was still spending most of her time in New York City with Barron while he finished the school year, though she did have an official appearance in D.C. the day after Valentine’s Day to welcome Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House. The president lunched with Chris Christie and his wife on Feb. 14, but Melania did not join him.”
The report also says that critics of the President have used this holiday to make fun of Trump. Even the Washington Post published a cartoon for this occasion: “Roses are red / violets are blue / we’re trying very hard / to destroy democracy for you.”
And Stephen Colbert, also made a video material of the president into a montaged message for his wife in which Trump continually tries to address Melania but gets distracted with his own supposed achievements.
“Melania, I just wanted to say, from the bottom of my heart — which, by the way, is so strong, good stamina, unlike Hillary,” he says. “That’s why she lost the election. Remember that? November 8th. Wasn’t that a great evening?”
“But baby, I’ll tell you what, my love,” the clip ends, “I love U—tah. I mean, did you see how many points I won by [in] Utah?”
