Melania Trump Savagely Mocked After Sitting in Oval Office Meeting — ‘Why is She There?’

Donald Trump welcomed the prime minister of Greece to the White House Tuesday by saying the United States was very proud of the country and “the comeback” it is making.

From 2010-2018, Greece survived on bailout loans from its European partners and the International Monetary Fund.

It exited the rescue program more than a year ago, but remains under strict supervision from lenders and has committed to achieving stringent budget targets for years to come.

Trump and Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met at a time of high stakes in the Mediterranean region. The Harvard-educated Mitsotakis said his country was “following a recipe” that has worked in the United States, including lower taxes, and the Greek economy has reacted positively.

Mitsotakis said he was looking for Trump’s support in calling on American companies to invest in Greece. Mitsotakis won office pledging to make the country more-business friendly, cut taxes and modernize Greece’s antiquated bureaucracy.

But that isn’t what most people were talking about on Twitter.

Melania Trump was also present in the Oval Office meeting, which is customary when the spouse of the visiting leader is also present.

But Melania basically sat there with a dour face the entire time, and made Twitter wonder why exactly she was there.
