Video from Florida rally sparks serious concern for Melania Trump

An interaction between President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, at a Saturday rally in Melbourne, Florida, is reigniting rumors that she is 'miserable' as America's first lady.

As Melania was preparing to address the applauding crowd, the president crossed the stage behind her, grasping her upper arm in the process.

His action caused her to flinch, turn her head downward and take a sharp breath in.

The first lady appeared to need a moment to regain her composure before continuing on and leading the crowd in the Lord's prayer.

People took to Twitter to share their concerns for the first lady, saying her body language was consistent with that of a domestic violence victim.

What on earth does @donald trump do to @MELANIATRUMP in private to make her shudder at his touch and look at his face is he gloating ??
Literally even the slightest touch by @realDonaldTrump makes #melaniatrump flinch. #ColdAsIce #TrumpRally
The flinch at 14 seconds is mesmerizing.
Literally even the slightest touch by that garbage monster makes her flinch
@TheDweck @IowaPeg That looks like PTSD
@WhoFdTheStork Looks exactly like PTSD, doesn't mean Trump is source, but her other interactions make me think he probably is.
imagining @MELANIATRUMP hiding in a locked bathroom, trying to avoid @realDonaldTrump's cold reptilian touch & realizing: "this is america"
@realDonaldTrump @MELANIATRUMP @IvankaTrump same flinch when he kissed her at last Campaign rally. It was after more women came out

This isn't the first time concerns have been raised over Trump and Melania's relationship.

A video from the Presidential Inauguration sparked the hashtag #FreeMelania last month.

In the short clip, Melania can be seen smiling at her husband -- but the moment he looks away, her smile disappears into a much more somber scowl.

A photo of the first lady watching the Super Bowl at Trump's Mar-a-Lago golf club while sporting a similar expression reignited the hashtag on February 5.

@anamariecox Edit: "Save your *activism* for people whose lives are being destroyed." Melania made her choices. She *had* choices.

There's no way they're just doing this to be down with the common people. Nope. #savemelania
@michaelwhitney Melania is sending the "save me" face. Think we need to sneak her out while Trump tweets.
@jeneps @Reince Some1 please save Melania, she has the look of the typical abused wife.
