A bizarre social media debate has raged overnight after a theory that Melania Trump was using a body double went viral.
Speculation began after footage emerged of a sombre looking Melania wearing large sunglasses which covered a lot of her face standing next to her husband during an address.
Twitter user, Joe Vargas, tweeted that he believed that the woman standing next to the president was not the real First Lady, but rather a body double, and users were quick to have their say, with many believing the theory.
