Options for North Korea are 'effective and overwhelming'

We have seen Melania make faces of disgust behind her husband's back, refuse to hold his hand on numerous occasions, and only show affection when it seems like she nearly has to.

Donald Trump has never really struggled in making people feel awkward, but you might have hoped that the one person he might not publically shame would be his wife.

Back in February, footage of the First Lady accompanying her husband at a campaign rally in Florida appeared to show her shuddering after he touched her arm mid-speech.

This is not the first time Melania has looked uncomfortable on stage with her husband.

In the wake of yet another North Korea missile test and a terror attack in London, President Trump spoke to soldiers and their families at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.

In May, Melania appeared to brush away an outreached presidential hand as the couple walked along a red carpet upon arriving in Israel.

But he said that while the U.S. did have a "military option", it was not the preferred route, adding that the United States is keen to work with allies on measures "short of war".

A third added: "Trump, after shaking her hand as if she were a stranger, practically shoves Melania from the podium".

US President Donald Trump called for an end to mandatory budget cuts that have brought down defense spending. We will defend our people, our nations, our civilisation, from all who dare to threaten our way of life.

President Trump celebrated the 70th birthday of the U.S. Air Force Friday, using the event to deliver a grim warning to North Korea, radical Islamic terrorists and other enemies.

"I have no problem kicking it to [defence secretary] Gen [James] Mattis, because I think he has plenty of options", she said.

Another tweeted: "So awkward. Can't imagine what goes on in private".
