Though Melania did not have a great popularity vote, the former FLOTUS is, however, more popular than her husband among members of the Republican Party.

Legit.ng recalls that Trump finally departed the White House for the last time as he left for Joint Base Andrews to attend a short farewell ceremony before his flight to Palm Beach.

The former president thanked reporters at the White House and said it had been the 'honor of a lifetime' to serve as president.

Meanwhile, the former first lady broke an old tradition after she snubbed First Lady Jill Biden and denied her a tour of the White House before her husband's inauguration as president.

Melania did not contact Jill, and in the process, she became the modern first lady not to invite her successor for a familiarisation tour of the White House.
