The Times reported that as the weeks wore on, it was said the former model became "emotionally checked out" of life in the White House even before a mob of her husband's supporters stormed the US Capitol on January 6.
In his last financial disclosure form as president, Trump detailed the damage the pandemic has wrought, at a time when many tourism businesses are suffering from a lack of travelers.
The 14-year-old boy, who has gotten quite tall since leaving Manhattan for the White House in summer 2017, is usually easy to spot, but there was no sign of him standing alongside his parents outside Marine One, which picked them up from the White House, or on Air Force One, which jetted them out of town.
On closer inspection, it appears Trump says something to her before guiding her away with his hand towards the auto, but the incident signals a frosty start to their new life at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort.

Former President Donald Trump and Melania Trump wave as they disembark from their final flight on Air Force One. Trump has a long way to go to rebuild an image left in tatters by his presidency, particularly the final months.
Donald Trump's empire has been hit hard by coronavirus closures, with revenue from his Washington and Las Vegas hotels down by more than half.
However, according to a report on CNN, Melania Trump has left a note of welcome for First Lady Jill Biden, just like how Donald Trump left a "very generous" letter to President Joe Biden, despite Trump not attending Biden's inauguration similar to how the past presidents would do.
The Mar-a-Lago, the Palm Beach club where Trump arrived Wednesday, saw revenue rise 10 per cent to $24.2 million.
Melania Trump has already been known to break from tradition by foregoing some customs that her predecessors took on.
Society publicist R. Couri Hay, who was an acquaintance of Mrs Trump's in NY, said in an interview: "She was a reluctant First Lady and she did it for her husband". "Her language copied that of her husband's farewell speech". This came to the fore when Melania refused to pose with Trump infront of the media, immediately after Trump exited White House. But Melania, on the other hand, keeps walking without breaking strides.
