That's because the first lady, as she has become famed for doing, draped her coat over her shoulders.

Footage showing how Melania Trump left her husband in front of journalists with cameras has recently been released online.

Melania Trump was joined at the hospital by Kellyanne Conway, a councilor to President Donald Trump.

When the couple at the White House after a short trip to Ohio, Trump was again seen attempting to hold Melania's right hand, which was inside her coat.

And she heard about neonatal abstinence syndrome, or NAS, from doctors dealing with it every day at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

This is not the first time that such an incident takes place between the couple.

Ohio Public Radio reports that gubernatorial candidate Mary Taylor and her running mate, Nathan Estruth, will also attend the president's event.

The president and first lady returned to Washington later in the afternoon. She tweeted an acknowledgement of the one-year observance of Trump's inauguration on January 20, without mentioning the President, or showing his picture. With high-fives and hugs, Trump smiled her way through her time with the children, chatting amicably.

The first lady did her professional duty by accompanying the president to a speech in OH on February 5, but while walking to an awaiting helicopter on the White House lawn she shut down his attempt to hold her hand.
