As US President Donald Trump officially announced his 2020 reelection bid during a rally in Orlando, Florida, it appears that First Lady Melania Trump managed to captivate the audience's attention thanks to the bold yellow suit she wore at the event.
Melania addressed the crowd before her husband took the stage, saying it's been an honour to serve as the first lady “of this incredible country for the past two years”, adding that she's “excited to do it for six more.”
The first lady's choice of clothes elicited a mixed reaction online, as a number of social media users voiced their approval.

Loved that Melania Trump trolled Michelle O. by rocking a sultry yellow jumpsuit after the former FLOTUS swanned on stage a few months ago in the most gawdawful banana barge dress and thigh high stomper boots! #KAG https://t.co/EyWQ92GByQ— trodabumsoutgrl Lee S.

However, her clothes attracted their fair share of derogatory remarks as well.

Some even wondered if perhaps the color of the first lady's attire was meant to convey some deeper meaning.
Is Melania subconsciously wearing the color yellow associated with CAUTION?— RLT (@taylorusamade) 19 июня 2019 г.
And several netizens were also quick to compare Melania's clothes to the attire of some of the former first ladies.
