Mexican media has gleefully picked up on a photo of the first lady dancing with a Hispanic soldier at the inauguration ball, commenting: “This is what happens when a Hispanic officer dances with Melania Trump”.
Images of her looking less-than-delighted while her husband sang along to My Way have become an internet sensation.

And so a Puerto Rican newspaper, Primera Hora, spoke to the Puerto Rican soldier who danced with Mrs Trump.
“I can hardly believe it,” said Jose Medina, 29. “I found out before the New Year and I had like three weeks of nerves.
“But I had a great time. It is such an honour to have had the privilege of dancing with the first lady. I had to steal the show and give her a twirl!”
The soldier, who entered the army in 2008 and spent a year in Iraq, said that he was chosen by his superiors.

“I think that we danced for like two minutes,” he said. “She asked me where I was from, if I had a family, kids, and if I was having a good time. I told her I was from Puerto Rico, and I asked her if she was having a good time.
“She said it was unforgettable, and she was very happy because all her family was together.”
He even asked her whether it was true that she didn’t want to live in the White House.
“She said that she would spend the first night there, because it was tradition. But then she would be living constantly in New York, until her son finished his studies.”
