White House pool photographers seem fixated on Melania’s legs

Her face is up there! White House pool photographers seem VERY fixated on Melania’s legs as the President meets the Ecuadorian leader in the Oval Office 

  • Several photos from Wednesday event prominently displayed First Lady’s calf
  • Pool snappers seemed to be trying to get an angle on Trump as he spoke
  • But several captured images that seemed to be fixated on Melania’s legs 

Photographers in the White House press pool gave the impression of being entranced with First Lady Melania Trump’s legs after her bare calves featured prominently in news photos of an Oval Office meeting.

Photos taken by AFP and Reuters photographers on Wednesday conspicuously displayed Melania’s legs as President Donald Trump spoke to reporters in the background.

The photos were taken during a meeting between Donald Trump and Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno, as reporters and photographers jammed into the Oval Office for a brief press availability.

Melania was seated on a couch arranged perpendicular to the two leaders, and likely her legs were merely accidentally in the way as photographers jockeyed for an image of the Trump as he spoke.

In fairness, the AFP photographer did also turn his lens up to capture this image of Melania's face as she looked on during the Oval Office meeting

Melania made a strong statement for the event, donning $7,700 snake-print Salvatore Ferragamo pencil skirt.

She paired the skirt with a white sweater and a bold green coat that was slung over her shoulders.

Her look was completed with a pair of dusty pink heels and a glamorous blowout, while daring to bare her legs without tights, despite the chilly temperatures in Washington, DC.

Trump said that he’s working on a trade deal with Ecuador’s President Moreno, who became the first chief of state from the small South American nation in 17 years to meet with an American president in Washington.

‘They have incredible product,’ Trump said about Ecuador’s exports. ‘They grow it and they make it and we like it – and they need our product.’

‘We are working on great deals. We’re working on military options including the purchase of a lot of our military equipment,’ Trump said.

Relations between the U.S. and Ecuador deteriorated during the 10 years of leftist Rafael Correa´s presidency, but have been rekindled under Moreno.

‘Ecuador has, after having gone through very hard times, and especially in regards to its international relationships, has decided to come together again with the international community and refresh relationships,’ Moreno said in the Oval Office. ‘We need to remember that the U.S. is the main trading partner for Ecuador.’

Trump’s trade negotiator, Robert Lighthizer, was expected to participate in the meeting.

Moreno has welcomed U.S. cooperation on security, economic and cultural issues and has joined the U.S. and nearly 60 other nations in backing the Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó, who is working to oust Venezuela’s president, Nicolas Maduro.

Ecuador has received $72 million from the United States to assist with the influx of people leaving Venezuela. There currently are nearly 400,000 Venezuelans in Ecuador.

Moreno said he also wanted to talk to Trump about drug trafficking and the fight against corruption and organized crime.

Moreno is at a weak moment of his presidency after nearly two weeks of violent protests last year over his decision to end fuel subsidies. He later retracted that decision and reached an agreement with indigenous leaders to cancel an austerity package backed by the International Monetary Fund. But the economy is still growing at a sluggish pace and Moreno´s approval rating has hovered around 20%.
