Donald Trump has pretty much violated all of international protocol and it now looks like the missing Melania has done the same thing. In an unprecedented move that no first lady in recent memory has done, Melania isn’t even living in the White House, preferring to stay secluded in New York with son Barron.
This has huge ramifications when leaders of nations visit the United States. The first lady is supposed to welcome as well as attend to the first lady of the visiting nation. In this case, it was the wife of the prime minister of Japan, Akie Abe who was left alone when Melania was no where to be found.
Watch video here:
It looks like the Trumps are bringing new traditions to the White House that are failing miserably.
Twitter had a few words for the first lady:
Melania Trump couldn’t be bothered to host the First Lady of Japan today. Must have had an important botox appointment.

OF COURSE Melania didn’t meet with First Lady of Japan. If they’re not going to send billionaires (aka, their best), why send anyone at all?

Melania couldnt get her butt to DC to show hospitality to Japan’s First Lady? What kind of FLOTUS is she? Where is the dignity and decorum?

So the first lady of Japan was the first lady to take a First Lady less tour of the white house cuz Melania was busy #priorities

In the future, Japan annihilated by Pres. Trump after North Korea spreads bawdy photos of First Lady Melania around Tokyo. #NeverTrump
