DONALD TRUMP, the President of the United States, held a press conference with his wife Melania on Tuesday and spoke about drug issues and the North Korea Kim Jong Un threat. A body language expert reveals exactly what Melania really thought about her husband’s impassioned speech.
Donald Trump held a press conference on Tuesday at a golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, and spoke about a range of issues from drugs to the nuclear threat from North Korea.
The President threatened North Korea with “fire and fury” – and also spoke about how he believed America could overcome drug issues. This comes after unearthed archived footage revealed what Trump really thinks about North Korea.
As he addressed his audience, First Lady Melania Trump sat on his left hand side. While she didn’t say anything, what did her body language reveal?
Body Language Expert, presenter and keynote speaker Darren Stanton spoke to Express.co.uk and decoded the press conference.
Darren said: “Her facial expressions are congruent with someone who is in agreement with what is being said by President Trump.
“At key moments we see subtle head nods which appear to happen unconsciously. This means her behaviour is consistent with what she is hearing and processing.”
As a body language expert, Darren looks for subtleties within someone’s non verbal behaviour that betray or are incongruent with their situation.

“But Melania’s behaviour here is in stark contrast to other situations where it was clear she was displaying defiance.
“This short clip shows someone who is in agreement and support of a great cause.”
Back in May this year, Melania shooed away Donald’s hand as they landed in Tel Aviv as part of their visit to Israel.
The First Lady appeared to slapped away the President’s hand as they were greeted by Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and wife, Sara, during Trump’s inaugural foreign tour.Despite the furore Melania and Donald were pictured just hours later all smiles – with no apparent issue between them.
