After Donald Trump's 2020 election loss, all eyes have been on the one-term president, his supporters, and the Trump family.

That being said, we all know that Donald Trump and Melania Trump don’t have the greatest of relationships, and you don’t have to be a body language expert to see that Melania Trump doesn’t want anything to do with her husband. 

And apparently, there could be more trouble in paradise than we realize, as rumors that the First Lady has a boyfriend have been spreading like wildfire.

Who is Hank Siemers, Melania Trump's rumored boyfriend?

Rumors started circulating in 2017 that First Lady Melania Trump was having a longtime affair with Henry "Hank" Siemers, the head of security at Tiffany's in the Trump Tower. 

Novelist Monica Byrne was the first to blow the whistle with a string of tweets accusing Melania of the affair — and of President Donald Trump knowing about it. They've since been deleted, but Perez Hilton has the thread posted to his site.

One of Byrne's tweets read, "Hi @realDonaldTrump! We're all wondering if your wife @MelaniaTrump is having an affair with the head of security at Tiffanys or nah?" Another reads, "But here it is: word is, for many years, Melania's been having an affair with the head of security at Tiffany's in the Trump Tower lobby."

Were Donald Trump and Melania Trump about to get a divorce?

A former White House staffer even claimed that divorce papers for the first family were signed, but the divorce was put on hold when he won the election. 

The theory states that they had to renegotiate the agreement. She's imprisoned in that marriage for as long as he's president. 

However, these claims turned out to be false and Melania's representatives also denied the rumors.

Does Donald Trump know about Melania's affair with Hank Siemers?

Byrne tweeted that Trump knew about Siemers and was totally okay with it. This might explain why Melania didn't bat an eyelash over those "grab her by the p***y" remarks during the 2016 election. 

Rumor has it that Melania stayed at the Trump Tower in New York City (versus moving to the White House right away when Trump first did after he was elected) to stay close to her boyfriend. 

A former employee of The Apprentice, Noel Casler, backs up this claim.

In a tweet from September 2019, Casler wrote, “Melania didn’t live with him in Trump Tower either, she lived with her boyfriend. We had to book the transport on ‘Apprentice’ finales and her pick-up was not on 5th Ave.” 

Hank Siemers is kind of a hunk.  

Judging from the pictures of the First Lady's rumored boyfriend, he's not bad on the eyes. 

Even with a fruity cocktail in his hand, Trump did a good job picking her side-piece. He's like a real-life Mr. Clean, only tanner. Well done.

Where does Hank Siemers work?

Siemers' official title is the Vice President of Global Retail Security of Tiffany & Co., so he's not just the guy guarding the big doors.

And, apparently, that was a somewhat recent promotion that happened not long after Trump got elected. 

What did Hank Siemers do before working for Tiffany & Co.?

Only the best for Melania, right?

Hank was not only promoted to VP, but he's also held leadership roles with Barnes & Noble, Pergament Home Centers, and Caldor over the course of his 27+ years in loss prevention.

He has a bachelor of science degree in criminal justice from St. John’s University. And if things ever go sour with Hank, well, there's always Justin Trudeau, right?

Is Hank Siemers married?

According to his Facebook profile, Hank Siemers got married on November 16, 2010.

Who are Hank Siemers' kids?

Hank Siemers has two children, Crystal and Trey.

Trey was born in 1995 and currently lives in Kingsland, Georgia with his girlfriend, Francesca, and their young daughter.

On August 23, 2019, Trey wished his dad a happy birthday on Facebook, captioning a screenshot of his dad on FaceTime, "I’m not sure what really went on here but happy birthday to the greatest man alive. Love you." 

There are rumors that Hank Siemers is Barron Trump's father.

As we all know, the internet is full of conspiracy theories, and many social media users actually believe that Hank Siemers is Barron Trump's real father.

"I saw Barron Trump is trending and so again I ask... how tall is melania’s boyfriend Hank Siemers??" one Twitter user wrote, insinuating that Siemers may be Barron's biological father.

"I hope for Barron's sake it's true. What life does he have after they leave the WH. The trumps are not welcome anywhere anymore," another Twitter user wrote. "I hope they don't program/weaponize him for a future predential run. Nah, no Trump has a chance in hell."

Did Melania Trump take a secret vacation with Hank Siemers in 2017?

Take this one with a grain of salt, folks.

Hank Siemers checked into Lahaina, Hawaii on July 3, 2017 on Facebook. 

While it's well-documented that Melania Trump was at the White House for Fourth of July festivities, it's interesting to note that Melania was radio silent on Twitter between June 29 and July 4, 2017.

The last photo she posted on Instagram during that time period was on June 29 — she and Trump hosted South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the White House for dinner — and the next photo she posted was on July 4, 2017.

While no one can say for sure, it is interesting that all of her social media activity came to a halt around the time Hank Siemers was in Hawaii.
