First lady Melania Trump is reportedly trapped in her room in Hamburg as protesters surrounded her hotel.
She was set to be a part of an event for spouses of the world’s leaders at the G20 summit in Germany organized by Angela Merkel’s husband, Joachim Sauer, but she was unable to leave her hotel as violent protests besieged the city again on Friday, NBC News reported.
“It’s unfortunate,” the first lady’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said.
The first lady tweeted her support for the people who have been injured in the violent demonstrations.

Anti-capitalist and anti-President Trump protesters have clashed with police since the G20 summit began, according to NBC News.
Clashes had first broken out near the site of the summit Thursday, with German riot police confronting thousands of protesters who had taken to the streets amid the arrival of President Donald Trump.
Upwards of 10,000 people belonging to an array of anti-Trump and anti-capitalist groups — many wearing masks — stormed the streets in a protest some had dubbed “Welcome to Hell,” with some participants attacking authorities, setting fires, hurling rocks at officers and buildings, chanting slogans and touting angry banners. German riot police, in turn, attempted to disperse the protesters with tear gas, smoke bombs and water cannons.
The news is spreading quickly:

Ironically enough, Mrs. Trump gave a speech in Poland the day before, stating how people should not have to live in fear.

What a difference one day and border between countries can make.
We hope the first lady is not in fear and that the situation is under control soon.
