The first lady was in no mood for PDA Monday morning as she slapped President Trump’s hand away after the couple touched down in Israel.

But Melania, dressed in sunglasses and a sharp white pencil skirt and blazer, can be seen coolly swatting it away just before the president greets dignitaries.
The two have been married for 12 years.
Melania is reportedly miserable with her new life as first lady and “struggling with the realities of her new role and the scrutiny that comes with it,” according to US Weekly.
“This life wasn’t her dream. It was Donald’s,” a Trump family friend, stylist Phillip Bloch, told the magazine. “Truthfully, it’s a lot to cope with.”
The president will spend two days touring Israel and promoting peace on the second leg of his three-part overseas trip.
He arrived in Tel Aviv after visiting Saudi Arabia and will head to the Vatican next to meet Pope Francis.
