First Lady Melania Trump has left a final snub on incoming First Lady Jill Biden — not giving her successor a tour of the family wing of the White House. "Melania Trump will become the first modern first lady not to invite the woman who will replace her to the White House for a walk-through of the private living quarters on the second and third floors," according to a CNN report.

Previously, Michelle Obama gave Melania the tour shortly after Donald Trump won the presidency. Laura Bush had Michelle Obama over twice — once solo and once with her two daughters so the girls could pick out their bedrooms in the residence. Reports suggest that Melania and Jill are believed to have last seen each other at the final presidential debate in October 2020 although they didn't interact at that event.

The Trumps will also not be attending President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration ceremony, when he becomes the nation's 46th president at noon on Wednesday, January 20. The last president not to attend his successor's swearing-in was Andrew Johnson about 150 years ago.

With the news making headlines, soon the Internet was abuzz. One user said: "Keeping it classy as always, Melania! The Trump family truly is a low brow trashy classless bunch with no manners." Another said: "I thought she may have had more brains and respectfulness than Trump but apparently NOT. That family has sure brought down the presidency and dragged it into the mud. Melania’s ‘immature’ snub to Jill Biden."

Sharing Melania's pictures, another user tweeted, "She’s broken tradition in many ways. Jill Biden will do just fine without meeting with Melania." Making a comparison, a user wrote, "Melania steals & plagiarised. The worst example of FlOTUS in US history! Replaced by a Lady, Dr Jill Biden. Doctoral degree and all."

Another said, "Melania Trump is a selfish b***h to the end. The worst First Lady who has ever occupied the WH. Did the bare minimum as First Lady. She only cares about herself & the almighty dollar."

Pointing at Melania's accent, a user wrote, "Dr Jill Biden must be thrilled not to have to listen to Melania, straining to understand what she's saying as she shows her around the White House!." One said: "Who would want to spend a minute with her? Jill Biden should consider herself fortunate not to have to waste a precision minute on Melania."

Another wrote, "Just go away, @Flotus. Take your fake sincerity, your meaningless #BestBest charade, your disgusting 'message' jackets, your foul-mouthed Xmas decorations rant, your racist birther complicity & let America heal from you & the Sociopath-in-Chief. Worst First Lady ever... #Melania."

Amid this controversy, on Monday, January 18, Melania delivered her last address as First Lady of the United States. In the six-minute pre-recorded speech, Melania promoted “love over hatred”. “Be passionate in everything you do,” she said. “But always remember that violence is never the answer and will never be justified.”

"The past four years have been unforgettable. As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism, and determination. I see the faces of brave young soldiers who have told me with pride in their eyes how much they love serving this country. To every service member and to our incredible military families: You are heroes, and you will always be in my thoughts and prayers," Melania said.

She also added, "As the world continues to confront the COVID-19 pandemic, I thank all the nurses, doctors, healthcare professionals, manufacturing workers, truck drivers, and so many others who are working to save lives. We grieve for the families who have lost a loved one due to the pandemic. Every life is precious, and I ask all Americans to use caution and common sense to protect the vulnerable as millions of vaccines are now being delivered. In the midst of this hardship, we have seen the best of America shine through.

"When I came to the White House, I reflected on the responsibility I have always felt as a mother to encourage, give strength, and teach values of kindness. It is our duty as adults and parents to ensure that children have the best opportunities to lead fulfilling and healthy lives," she added and concluded with, "Together, as one national family, we can continue to be the light of hope for future generations and carry on America’s legacy of raising our nation to greater heights through our spirit of courage, goodness and faith. No words can express the depth of my gratitude for the privilege of having served as your First Lady. To all the people of this country: You will be in my heart forever."
