First lady Melania Trump has flown to Mar-a-Lago after canceling her trip to Davos with her husband, President Donald Trump.

Melania Trump appeared at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum on Jan. 25 before flying out to her Mar-a-Lago estate in West Palm Beach, Florida, CNN reported. This marks her first public appearance since reports surfaced of adult film actress Stormy Daniels' alleged 2006 affair with her husband.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the people whose lives and families were broken by the horrors of the Holocaust," the first lady said in a statement after her visit to the Holocaust Memorial Museum. "Yet it is also through our shared humanity that we come together now in commemoration, strength, and love. My heart is with you, and we remember."

The White House did not alert the press of Melania Trump's trip to the Holocaust museum, or of her travel plans to Florida. She was scheduled to accompany Donald Trump on his trip to Davos for the World Economic Forum, but those plans were abruptly canceled due to "scheduling and logistical issues," according to a spokesperson for the first lady.

News of Donald Trump's alleged affair with Daniels surfaced on Jan. 12 after The Wall Street Journal reported that his lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid the porn star $130,000 before the 2016 presidential election to keep her quiet.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, detailed her encounter with the real estate mogul during a 2011 interview with In Touch Weekly magazine. The publication released a transcript of that interview on Jan. 17.

Daniels said her affair with Donald Trump began in 2006 after they met at a celebrity golfing tournament. She described the sex as being "textbook generic."

"He wasn’t like, chain me to the bed or anything. It was one position. I can definitely describe his junk perfectly, if I ever have to," Daniels said during the interview. "He definitely seemed smitten after that. He was like, 'I wanna see you again, when can I see you again?'"

Daniels added that she had never seen Melania Trump in person.

Meanwhile, the president recently took to Twitter to express his excitement over his trip.

"Will soon be heading to Davos, Switzerland, to tell the world how great America is and is doing," he tweeted on Jan. 24. "Our economy is now booming and with all I am doing, will only get better...Our country is finally WINNING again!"
