Here are photos of First Lady Melania Trump and other members of President Donald Trump’s family at the State of the Union address for 2019. The SOTU was delayed one week due to the government shutdown. Interestingly, Melania was dressed in all black, painting a sharp contrast to the Democrats who were dressed in all white.

Last year, Melania was dressed in a white pantsuit:


This year, many Democratic Congresswomen chose to wear white. Rep. Brenda Lawrence said in a press conference, “Today we stand together wearing white in solidarity with the women of the suffrage movement who refused to take no for an answer. To an administration that has closed its eyes to women, we will be seen.”

It is interesting to note that Melania Trump wore all black today, versus the white she wore last year, while the Democrats were wearing white this year.

But it’s probably not so odd that she’s wearing black. Because Melania Trump chose last year to wear all white, it was unlikely that she would wear white again this year.

This is a developing story.
