Melania, 48, has often been trolled for the way she behaves when she is on official engagements with her husband, particularly incidents that involve handshakes.
The video of her also drew comparisons to a similar reaction she had during President Trump's inauguration.
In the video, Melania was captured smiling at her husband, when he turned back and looked at the people standing behind him at the podium.
She smiled brightly at her husband, but her face seemed to fall the moment Trump turned his back on her.
If looked carefully at the video, it seemed like President Trump was not making eye contact with the First Lady at all. He was looking at his daughter Ivanka who was standing right behind Melania.
Ivanka can be seen giving a wide grin to her father before he turns back and faces the audience.
