Melania Trump's new hashtag has people very confused
Melania Trump has begun sharing a new hashtag on Twitter, and it has people very confused.
Since Donald Trump's inauguration at the end of January, Melania Trump has had her fair share of viral moments on social media.
When images of her emerged looking unhappy while watching the Super Bowl and a video showed her facial expression change dramatically at the inauguration, #FreeMelania began trending worldwide.
However, the notoriously private First Lady has recently created her own hashtag that she adds to each of her tweets: #PowerToTheFirstLady.
Since Melania began sharing the hashtag earlier this week, people have been expressing their confusion about what it actually means.
"Can someone please explain what the #Powerofthefirstlady hashtag means?" said one user.
"Powerofthefirstlady sounds like an ad tagline for antiperspirant," said another.
"This #PowerOfTheFirstLady thing sounds a lot like what a teen girl in an anime cartoon would shout to transform into an adult."
"Is it me or is Melania Trump's #PowerOfTheFirstLady thing kind of weird?"
While she has ultimately kept her plans as First Lady under wraps as of yet, Melania has hired her Chief of Staff as Lindsay Reynolds, a former associate director of the White House Visitor’s Office during the George W. Bush administration, and is "putting together a professional and highly-experienced team".
"It has been an honour to take on the responsibility of the position of First Lady, with its long history as an important representative of the President, our family, and the traditions of our nation around the world," she said in a statement released by the White House.
"I am putting together a professional and highly-experienced team which will take time to do properly. I am excited to be organizing and bringing together such a dynamic and forward thinking group of individuals who will work together to make our country better for everyone."
The White House insists Melania will be moving to Washington later this year, with senior adviser to the first lady Stephanie Winston Wolkoff saying: "Mrs Trump will be moving to D.C. and settling in to the White House at the end of the school year, splitting her time between New York and D.C. in the meantime.
"Mrs Trump is honoured to serve this country and is taking the role and responsibilities of first lady very seriously. It has only been a short time since the inauguration and the first lady is going to go about her role in a pragmatic and thoughtful way that is unique and authentic to her."
