First lady Melania Trump was trapped inside her residence in Hamburg on Friday because of the violent protests outside the G20 summit, according to reports.
A spokeswoman said they’d been unable to get security clearance from police to leave the guest house and that “it’s unfortunate,” The Hill reported, citing NBC News.
The first lady tweeted about the violent clashes between protesters and police.
“Thinking of those hurt in #Hamburg protests. Hope everyone stay safe! #G20,” she wrote.
Trump was slated to attend a sightseeing tour hosted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s husband, Joachim Sauer.
Other partners on the trip include French President Emmanuel Macron’s wife, Brigitte, UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s husband, Philip, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife, Sophie Gregoire.
The mayor of the New York City, where the Trump’s have several residences, has rushed to Hamburg to join the violent protestors with his son. –NYP
