These speculations are not helped by the fact that the pair has been photographed in many awkward hand-holding and hugs situations.

So, when former POTUS Barack Obama, managed to put a big smile on Melania's face recently, the internet reacted in an epic way.
On Saturday, Barack attended the funeral of former first lady Barbara Bush. Also in attendance was the current FLOTUS but she did not attend with her husband, Donald Trump.
The first lady represented the current administration and took a seat next to Barack Obama for the occasion.
Of course, there were several photos taken but the one where Obama and Melania seemed to be having a nice conversation quickly went viral.
In the picture taken before the service began, the former POTUS and current FLOTUS were pictured talking and she was positively beaming at whatever he had said to her.
People were quick to point out the sweetness of this exchange and many took to Twitter to express their views. Most of them were based on the fact that Melania looked much happier sitting with Obama than she had in ages.
And there were those who brought up the fact that she happened to be looking so happy at an event (sad though it was) that she did not attend with her husband.
Twitter went to town on this photo and it's hard not to LOL at some of the jokes they came up with. We have to admit though, it's really nice to see Melania relaxed and smiling for a change.
