Watch Trump Completely Forget Wife Melania As He Heads to NATO Summit
Donald Trump appeared to forget something when leaving for the NATO summit – namely his wife, Melania.
It’s not the first time the President has failed to wait for his wife – past instances include leaving her out in the rain while holding an umbrella, and expressing how much the First Lady “wanted to be here” while she was standing right next to him.
Who can forget in 2017 in Fort Myers, Florida, when Trump sent his regards on behalf of his absent wife—while she was standing right next to him.

“I just want to thank everybody, the first responders, on behalf of myself, our Vice President—Melania really wanted to be with us,” Trump said, somehow forgetting that the Slovenian former model was standing directly to his left in a green shirt and white baseball cap.
And then there was the time Trump just abandoned Melania outside during a visit from the Czech president.
In a video of the guests’ arrival, Donald Trump greeted the Czech president and First Lady after they stepped out of a black car, then led the president inside as Melania Trump stepped in the other direction, seemingly waiting for the traditional photo opportunity before going into the White House. The Czech first lady stood back with Melania Trump and the two women shrugged before following their husbands in.

But what happened yesterday seemed particularly odd.
Trump walked towards Marine One for the trip to Andrews Air Force Base, and just completely forgot his wife. When she finally caught up they shared quick words.
