Melania Trump showed no "genuine sense of positive emotions" as she exited the White House for the final time, a body language expert has said.
On Wednesday, January 20, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump saw the end of their tenure, as the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden was sworn into office.
And Melania's signature move appeared to give away her true emotions on her final day at the White House.
Speaking to The Mirror, body language expert Judi James gave her verdict on both Donald and Melania Trumps' body language as they bid farewell to their home and offices of the last four years.
The pair spoke at an event at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, with the plan to fly on to Trump's Mar-a-Lago golf club residence in Palm Beach, Florida.
Both shunned the inauguration ceremony of incoming President Joe Biden.
The body language expert revealed what signature move of Melania's showed how she was really feeling.
She said: "Melania, in particular, was performing her signature 'Lightning smile' that appears and disappears quickly, suggesting no genuine sense of positive emotions.
"As Trump seemed to battle to hold his head up at times her smiles were sandwiched between a dour-looking mouth clamp and some clenched-teeth expressions."
And despite his tenure coming to an end, Judi said Donald "put in one last performance of arrogance and bravado before he left office".
She added: "Using some small taps and some firm clasps of her hand, even keeping hold of it as he did his last salutes, as well as touching her back and waist as she walked ahead of him, Trump probably used some of the most tactile rituals with his wife to date.
"He gazed at her fondly during her speech but apart from that, there were no moments of 'added warmth' from her though, i.e. eye-contact or reassuring strokes or touches that you could expect on an occasion like this.

"With his voice appearing to be close to breaking at times though, this could have been a deliberate avoid for an alpha male trying to put in one last performance of arrogance and bravado before he left office."
