However, on the evening of January 22, Grisham backtracked, telling CNN Melania Trump's trip was now off, citing "scheduling and logistical issues".

Earlier Thursday, FLOTUS had surfaced at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, making her first public outing since porn star Stormy Daniels was quoted alleging an affair, a decade ago, with President Trump.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the people whose lives and families were broken by the horrors of the Holocaust".

US First Lady Melania Trump will not be accompanying her husband to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, according to American media reports. The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump's personal lawyer brokered a $130,000 payment to Daniels in October 2016 to prohibit her from publicly discussing the alleged affair before the presidential election.

In a republished interview with InTouch Weekly magazine, Stormy offered excruciating details of how Trump had compared her to one of his daughters. Daniels now claims the affair never happened but she wasn't saying that when the interview was conducted in 2011.

On the one-year anniversary of her husband's inauguration Saturday, Melania Trump tweeted an image of herself with a military escort at Trump's inaugural swearing-in ceremony.
