President Donald Trump appeared to forget Melania Trump as he went to board his helicopter without her by his side. The astonishing moment saw the US President walk ahead of his the First Lady, before realising she wasn't by his side. Viewers watching on were shocked by the fact that the US leader nearly boarded the Marine One helicopter without his own wife.
A video, posted by Fox 10 Phoenix, shows Donald Trump walking toward the helicopter alone before suddenly stopping.

After Melania finally caught up, the pair exchanged a few words before they both boarded the helicopter.Donald Trump appeared to forget his own wife as he went to board his helicopter without Melania (Image: IG)Viewers were split on the video, with many claiming that Mr Trump went ahead because Melania was late (Image: GETTY)
