Melania Trump's presence at Mar-a-Lago comes amid weeks of speculation over her reaction to news reports of her husband's alleged 2006 affair with Stormy Daniels, an adult-film star, and Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's admission that he paid Daniels $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement in 2016.

Trump has so far remained personally silent on the issue, while the White House and Trump's lawyers have maintained that the claims of the 2006 affair are false and politically motivated.
