Media storm at Melania's heels for flood visit

First Lady Melania Trump received criticism for turning up in five inch heels with her President husband to survey the devastation wreaked by Storm Harvey in Texas.

Mrs Trump cut a glamorous figure in slim-fitting black trousers and spiky black stilettos. One news article by a UK newspaper claimed she donned "the most inappropriate clothes imaginable".

However, the Trump camp hit back swiftly, saying the attention given to her apparel amid Harvey's devastation was unfortunate.

"It's sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are worried about her shoes," Trump's communications director Stephanie Grisham said, according to CNN reporter Kate Bennett.

Mr Trump described the devastating Storm Harvey as being of an "epic proportion" as he touched down in Texas yesterday to see the aftermath for himself.
