The ‘tide is turning’ in Donald Trump’s marriage, with Melania set to have ‘more power’ in the future, a body language expert has claimed.
Recent reports suggest the couple is headed for divorce, with an insider claiming the First Lady is ‘counting the minutes’ until she can separate from the President.
But psychology coach Bruce Durham says he believes the two will stay together after they leave the White House for the last time today.
Speaking to The Mirror, Mr Durham said ‘something is shifting’ in the relationship after nearly 16 years of marriage.
He said: ‘Well from a base line body language analyses perspective, the tide is turning, something is shifting, and it would not be a surprise that if she didn’t leave him, she takes on a more powerful and formidable role in the relationship moving forward. And good on her I say!’
Looking back on footage of the couple’s first dance together at Trump’s 2016 inauguration ball, the expert claims Melania was the guiding force and ‘support mechanism’ in that moment.
However, he adds that Trump was ‘sublimely unaware that he looks uncomfortable or that he is out of his depth’, as his ‘narcissistic tendencies are in full flow’.
He said: ‘In this dance, we see a glimpse into the fundamental lack of emotional connectivity surrounding Donald. Yes, he is great with numbers but as often with people like this, they can often struggle with the human connection.

‘Melania to her credit, is trying to guide Donald into having a simple dance. She is much calmer in this situation. While Donald is talking, she is the one who is putting up with it as she knows that talking is his way of fumbling through something that he does not enjoy or connect with.’
While Melania takes the lead in the dance, she does still look uncomfortable at times as the eyes of the world are on her, Mr Durham said.
It comes after ex-aide Stephanie Wolkoff claimed the First Lady has been negotiating a post-nuptial agreement to ensure the couple’s son Barron would get an equal share of Trump’s fortune.
Ms Wolkoff alleged the President and his wife had separate bedrooms in the White House and described their relationship as a ‘transactional marriage’, according to the Mail on Sunday.
There have been a number of public moments when Mrs Trump has appeared to bat away her husband’s affections.
When questioned on their marriage, both have said they have ‘a great relationship’, with Trump saying they never argue.
