In Saudi Arabia, Melania Trump ops to keep her head bare

Among discussions of basic human rights, especially women's rights, Melania Trump's decision to not wear a head scarf was signinficant.  Especially considering her husband's prior criticism of Michelle Obama to refuse to wear the scaf as well.  I see this as symbolic of the relationship between the president and the first lady.  Although husbands and wives don't always necessarily get along, one can assume that a presdent and his family would at least be on the same page.  At the very least, be notifed of his stance beforehand, if they weren't already aware.  It seems as though more and more people who are close with the President are seemingly turning against him.  Melania's move in Saudi Arabia is a good example of that. If it's not, it's simply an example of ignorance.
