There are 10 days left until Americans come to vote for their next president and the events follow one another in the frantic race to get followers in the last days of the campaign. But neither the proximity of the electoral appointment, set for next November 3, nor having passed the coronavirus seems to have softened Melania regarding the distant attitude she maintains with her husband, Donald Trump, current president of the United States and candidate for the Republican party to renew his term for another four years.
In her first outing at a public event with Donald Trump after having both tested positive for covid-19, the first lady has once again repeated one of those gestures to which the cameras are attentive. It happened this Wednesday at the end of the debate held in Nashville, Tennesse that faced Trump with Joe Biden at Belmont University, the last one before the election date. At the appearance, the couple appeared holding hands at all times, but when they left, Melania Trump repeated what the media has already captured several times: she let go of her husband’s hand with a certain slight, like the one she tries to break free from an annoying bondage. Melania’s almost always serious face is no longer a novelty, but her poorly concealed rudeness is unlikely to be careless. It could have been the first, but with as many advisers as surround any presidential couple from one of the most powerful countries in the world, it is unthinkable that they have not advised the first lady on the effect of these gestures and that she, somehow, even Some hidden point, do not keep doing them so that the world sees them and finds out that your relationship is anything but happy.
It is not that Melania Trump does not smile – she does it when she attends some solo event and feels comfortable – it is that it does not come out when she has her husband, Donald Trump, by her side. His current chemistry can be described as anything but sparkling and complicit. The contentiously violent rejection of the hand of her husband this Thursday, joins others that have happened in time. At the beginning of June, the couple visited the memorial park in homage to Pope John Paul II in the capital, Washington DC They laid a bouquet of flowers there. Both approached the statue of the Pontiff and later posed for the media. Then came the image that has spread like wildfire. Donald Trump asked a very serious Melania, relatively quietly, to smile for the cameras. And she remained undaunted. He insisted and while showing all his gleaming teeth, Melania only managed to make a face that did not convince anyone.
This was not the first time either. The day before he was sworn in as president, Donald Trump introduced his wife to the Republican leaders and secretly forced her to approach the microphone and speak before those present. She relented and, after a few tense moments, finished with a few words. A day later, at Trump’s inauguration as president of the United States, in January 2017, a taciturn Melania was seen, who only smiled at a time when her husband turned to her; then he stepped back, lowered his head, and put on a serious face again.
In fact, that same day, upon her arrival at the White House, Melania did not enter with her husband. Donald would take a few steps forward and leave her alone getting out of the car in which they arrived at the residence. When she entered it, the first lady was received and welcomed by the outgoing Obama couple, to whom she gave a present and who welcomed her lovingly when her husband was already inside the mansion.
Melania has also given it back to her husband on occasion, or at least that’s how it turned out. When she turned one year as first lady, she chose as an image of gratitude a photograph without her husband, in which she appeared clutching the arm of a soldier. Precisely then the marriage was in the eye of the hurricane due to the scandal of Stormy Daniels, the porn actress who had an affair with Donald Trump. In fact, on their social networks there are hardly any photos with the president, beyond some of official events or visits.
In May 2017, on a state visit to Israel, the first lady rejected her husband’s hand upon arrival in Tel Aviv, including a light slap, as they walked alongside the country’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara . A few days later, when they landed in Rome for a visit to Pope Francis, the president tried again but she hid her discomfort by brushing a lock of hair from her face.
In February 2018, a year after coming to power, Melania Trump rejected her husband’s hand as they were on their way to the presidential helicopter through the White House gardens. Then, the president tried to reach the hand of his wife, but he ran into the sleeve of her yellow coat; she avoided Trump’s hand and walked forward when he tried to grab her to greet the cameras. Another of the most notorious moments was when, one rainy day and also in the gardens of the White House, the couple went out to speak with the press. The president carried an umbrella and exposed Melania Trump on more than one occasion.
Gestures and attitudes that have nothing to do with the behavior of the first lady in other acts. One of the most striking moments occurred during the funeral of Barbara Bush, wife and mother of American presidents. Held in Houston in April 2018, Melania Trump sat next to Barack Obama, with whom she was seen as an accomplice and laughing. Later, he posed with his widower, George HW Bush, and all his successors in office – except Donald Trump – accompanied by their wives, and then he did smile as he has rarely seen during the almost four years that he has been a tenant of the White House.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today
Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.
Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
