In video posted by NBC, the first lady and Barron were all smiles as they exited Marine One on the White House lawn.
Melania and Donald Trump held hands as they walked away after stepping off the helicopter — and they were definitely holding hands this time, unlike in certain other viral moments of theirs.
Confirming the move with a tweet from the official FLOTUS account, the first lady wrote, “Looking forward to the memories we’ll make in our new home! #Movingday,” alongside a photo of a view of the Washington Monument through one of the White House windows.

She announced early in Trump’s presidency that she planned to stay in New York with Barron until he finished his school year at the Upper West Side’s Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School uninterrupted. Next year, it’s reported that Barron will attend St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland, Vanity Fair reports.
Just before the election, Melania Trump announced her plan to start a campaign against cyberbullying. Her spokesperson told Vanity Fair that she “continues to work on building her agenda in a thoughtful way… She likes things to be done right, and doing things right takes time.” Now that she’s in D.C., we’ll see if the first lady finally launches that initiative.
