Per Woodward and Costa, Melania was seen holding back tears as she and former president Trump made their White House goodbyes — and since for years, we've been hearing that Melania really hated D.C. and wanted out and didn't sign up for this, it was fairly surprising to see how different her experience might have been after all.
