Melania’s $487 Gold Belt, Trump’s Gold Chain Are Twitter Memes: Did Trump Bow To Saudi King Salman? [Photos]

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have gotten loads of attention since embarking on their foreign trip. As reported by the Inquisitr, Melania wore a reddish-orange leather skirt when leaving the White House and changed into a black jumpsuit after landing in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. However, a gold chain presented to President Trump, seen above as Mr. Trump inspected the Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud Medal given him at the Royal Court Palace, as well as Melania’s gold belt, seem to be getting more attention online. Also gaining attention is the fact that Melania chose not to wear a headscarf in Saudi Arabia, something President Trump criticized former First Lady Michelle Obama for doing.

On social media, Melania’s big and wide gold belt is being compared to WWE wrestling belts or belts worn by boxing champions. As of this writing, the tweets about Melania’s gold belt seem to be outpacing the tweets about President Trump’s gold chain on Twitter. However, both Mrs. Trump’s gold belt and Mr. Trump’s gold chain are causing plenty of chatter and memes to be created on the social media platform.

As noted by White House Wardrobe in a retweeted tweet from a CNN reporter, Melania’s belt is a Yves Saint Laurent wide python embossed belt, currently selling for approximately $487, when converted to current U.S. dollar amounts.

As seen in the comments below from social media, Melania’s belt has sparked all sorts of theories online, with some people thinking Melania was going for a superhero type of look by choosing that gold and bold belt.

Other people on social media are comparing Melania’s gold belt to a chastity belt, or some kind of belt that came from Air Force One.

Beyond Melania’s big gold belt, which Farfetch describes as a “gold leather wide python embossed belt from Saint Laurent,” there is also social media buzz about how President Trump behaved when he received the Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud Medal. The photo of Saudi King Salman presenting President Trump with the gold chain shows Mr. Trump bending down, which is leading to speculation about whether or not President Trump bowed to the Saudi King or if Mr. Trump was simply taller and needed to bend down.

Meanwhile, Melania has her own Twitter Moment regarding her gold belt.
