First lady Melania Trump who was supposed to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, with President Donald Trump has now abruptly canceled her trip. Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s spokeswoman, told CNN on Monday that Melania was going to skip the trip because of “scheduling and logistical issues." 

The East Wing Communications director revealed the change in plans just a week after confirming Melania’s attendance at the annual meeting of influential financial leaders and business titans. 

Melania’s sudden decision surely managed to raise several questions on social media. Several Trump critics on Twitter commented on Melania’s absence as soon as the news broke.

"Sounds like 'Stormy' weather got in the way of their plans. Good for her. #StandUp," one tweet read in a sarcastic reference to Stormy Daniels.

Several reports claimed that Melania walked out of the event after an adult film star named Stormy Daniels claimed of having an affair with the president. Melania has also not made any public statement since The Wall Street Journal reported on Jan. 12 that Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen paid a hefty amount of $130,000 to Daniels just before the 2016 presidential elections to stay mum about an alleged sexual encounter she had with Trump in 2006. Cohen has maintained his innocence and has so far rejected the claims made in the report. However, the first lady joined her husband on his trip to Mar-a-Lago for a long holiday weekend on Jan. 12.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, told Touch Weekly that she had an affair with Trump after his marriage to Melania in 2005. The 2011 interview was published last week.

Melania was also not spotted with the president during the two evening dinners hosted by the POTUS, one with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and another with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

She also tweeted a message Jan. 15 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, something POTUS was criticized for not doing. 

In addition to this, Melania also marked the one year anniversary of Trump’s inauguration by tweeting an image of her and a military escort, at Trump's inaugural swearing-in ceremony. The picture tweeted by Melania not only excluded the president but also did not mention the POTUS by name. Her post said the past year was filled with “many wonderful moments”. 

Trump’s own trip to Davos was confirmed only on Monday due to the federal government shutdown. White House had said the POTUS would attend the forum only if the shutdown ended before his scheduled departure. Trump signed a funding bill to end the shutdown on Monday night with White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirming the news. 

"The President's delegation will leave tomorrow, and the President will continue on his trip later in the week," she said.
